1One method is to select the Move tool and drag from one image window to the other. The other method is to drag the layer from the Layers palette for the first image into the image window for the second image. If you use this technique, it is not necessary to select the Move tool. No matter which method you use, you must be able to see at least part of both images in the work area, so Maximize Mode cannot be active (on the Window > Images submenu). Also, if you hold down Shift as you drag, the new layer will be centered in the image.
2No to both questions. The changes you can make to the special Background layer are limited. However, changing the name of the Background layer (by double-clicking it in the Layers palette and clicking OK in the message that appears) converts the Background into an ordinary layer. You can then delete areas, transform, move up or down the layer stack, and apply other layer changes. Although another layer can replace the former Background layer at the bottom of the layer stack, that does not impose limitations on it. Even renaming a layer Background does not reinstate the special protections associated with the original Background.
3The Eyedropper tool is a great way to select a color that’s in an image and set that color as the Foreground or Background color. You click the image at the spot where the color you want appears, and the Eyedropper tool picks it up.
4Both tools copy from one part of an image to another. Before you can start copying, you have to define the source of the copying. You do that by holding down Alt and then clicking the area of the image that you want to use as the source. Then you can drag the tool over the area where you want to reproduce the texture (Healing Brush) or image (Clone Stamp).
