1. how to group face layer with middle layer and 2. where does clipping masks come into play. Basically once I moved photo onto canvas and draw selective with margquee I'm lost. Please help.
Thanks for your patience with me.....I'll get it eventually.
to group a layer with the underlying one, use menu/layers/group with previous (the shortcut is Ctrl G).
There is another shortcut: in the layer palette, move your cursor on the horizontale line separating the two layers, and hit Alt + click
The layer is grouped when it is moved slightly on the right.
Using clipping masks and grouping layers are not obvious at first, but once you get the hang of it, this is very powerful!
