OK, the question is simple doesnt even have anything to do with retouching and honestly i dont know where forum i should place this... sorry if i place it in the wrong forum feel free to delete this.

    If I understand you correctly, select your Star or whatever with Lasso or other selection tool. Select your image, copy and paste into the Star.

      Create your shape on its own layer. Put your photo on the layer above that. Activate the layer with the photo on it and do Ctrl+G (or Layer -> Group with Previous).

          Photo Template Help
          by Liz
          I've been searching trying to find out how I create a template such as the example attached. I found two sites but must be missing a step in both because I couldn't get it to work; looked at Russell Brown's site and a few others. I know I've seen it done somewhere in my travels. So I thought...

          align a new layer
          by jarulex
          Hello Folks!
          could you explain me how to align the new layer with the image I'm working with when I transfer the layer from a different but same image (or an other similar frame of the same model, for instance). Example, if I wanted to transfer an hand from another frame, can I align it automatically?...
