I use the marquee tool to select part of the image as I want to use the move tool to move that specific part of the image however instead the entire image is moved when I do that.

Which product are you using?
Which version?
Do you have the move tool options set to select groups (which might select more than you expect)?

Yes it's on groups. I'm using CS6. Not sure which version. But to clarify I've selected three different layers and have the marquee tool selected around a specific part of the document. I want to move that specific part within those three layers but it moves the entire document when I only want to move that portion. It works just fine when I only have one layer selected but when I select more it does this.
