Part 10. Using Layers to Combine Photos ... > Copying an Object to a New Layer

Copying an Object to a New Layer

Selecting an object on the background layer, making changes, and then saving your work, changes the original image forever. Instead, use these steps to copy a selected object to a new layer, leaving the background layer unchanged.

Click a selection tool, such as Lasso.

Select the object to be copied to a new layer.

Choose Layer, New, Layer via Copy.
