Pse 10 Project Bin

After you have your transparent layer in your workspace, go down to the other papers you have added to the project bin, click on one and drag and drop it on top of the transparent background.
You should then see the two pieces together and two layers in the right bin. I think I know where you are stuck because it's where I was when I started, but I had someone to help.
After you add the pieces to photoshop you then have to physically place one on top of the other to get layers - just clicking on them will not do it.
Think of it in terms of paper scrapping. You have all your pieces on the table, you can look at each one but they are separate. You need to pick up one and actually place it on top of another to have layers.
Does that help? I truly do understand how you can't get further and use the videos until you get past this point.
Write back if this isn't what you mean and please keep asking.

I also just remembered a few times when I've accidentally "lost" my project bin. Is that what you mean? When that happened, there's usually some sort of arrow underneath the workspace that if you click on it, will bring it back.
I'm sorry I can't be more specific because currently my project bin isn't lost and I can't find how to make it go away - it usually happens by accident!
But, if you poke around the bottom there and click on some sort of down arrow, hopefully your project bin will reappear!
I hope that helps..... We'll keep trying!

1. Go to Edit>Preferences>General and be sure there is a check mark next to Allow Floating Documents in Full Edit Mode
2. Go back and open a new blank document in your workspace
3. Go to Window>Images and click on Float All in Windows
Then try opening and dragging/dropping some papers onto your document. Does that change anything?

What worked: At the top of the screen under "Window", click on "Images", and then "Consolidate all into Tabs" This will put the tabs into a single, less annoying line at the top of the workspace--but the Project Bin remains visible, and as long as you are swiping things up from the project bin, they will be open. If you close one of those top tabs, though, it closes the paper or embellishment or whatever.
So this is my work-around. If anyone finds something better, let me know!

Ah well. Another epic fail.
Will keep looking for a work-around!
