  3. Well, I find these tutorials very interesting, even I sometimes have difficulties with the English (I live in Germany). Still, I cant move the sparkling water selection to the same level were the picture of the girl is. The selection always gets a new level. Could someone help me?

  4. Thanks but this is not working for me… when I drag my selection to my photo the whole ‘splash” gets taken over, not just the selection. What am I doing wrong? I have tried it 6 times already followed step by step… to no avail. I am using CS5.

  5. …cannot do this; each time I drag & drop the selected watersplash, I get the whole image, i.e. the water splash and the black surround? Any thoughts? Using CS$

  6. I’ve tried this several times, and when I create the layer mask in my design image (the woman’s photo in the example shown, then go to move/scale the layer mask, it has already cropped the layer mask to the size of the canvas. What am I doing wrong?

  7. As always: great tutorial. I like your subcjects and also your clear and pleasant voice.

    Sorry English is not my mother tokgue

  8. Doesn’t seem to work the same way in CS5. I load the selection, but it moves it as a graphic to a new layer instead of moving just the selection. How do we do this in CS5?
