Is anyone out there? I hope I can get a quick bit of advice. Please.How can I import a file f which is a JPEG, to an existing Photoshop image and layer the new imported photo over part of the existing image?

I'm not an PS expert, but I would open the 2 files you are working with. Then go to File, New and set up a third file [make sure it has the dimensions, dpi, etc. that you want]. Go to existing PS image and Select, All, Copy and Paste it into the new file as Layer 1. Do the same with the file "f" and  paste it into the new file as layer 2. Use the move file to positon layer 2 where  you want it to be.

Another approach:
  1. Open one of the two JPEG files in PS and immediately double-click on the "Background" in the Layers Panel, clicking OK to the New Layer dialog box.
  2. Drag and drop the other of the two JPEG files into the document window, adding it as a layer.
  3. Choose File > Save, giving your new layered PS a file name and location where you would like to store it.
  4. Continue to work as you would normally with layered images.

(And yes, there are plenty someones out here!  Ask away.)
