Howdy Antonio,

You're having trouble with Photoshop?  Which version?  On which OS?  Could you post a screenshot or more detailed steps so we can help you out?

Thanks,
David

I dont know how to explain that when I try to add an overlay to a photo, normally I drag the overlay and photoshop says "the current selected layer is a background layer cannot move butI can convert it to a normal layer and then change the attributes" well now Im not getting that message and i cannot move the overlay to my image.
I hope I explained that correctly.

Hey, Antonio.  I can't see this video because it is "private."  Could you make it public?

Thanks,
David

No worries, man.  Have you tried to simply grab the layer from the Layers panel and drag it to the new document?  I just tried that on both Win and Mac and it worked fine in the currently-shipping version of the app.  Does that work for you?

Thanks,
David
