How To Edit a JPG ?
I am completely, totally new to this and just want to make up a page of traceable letters for a child.

I have a sample page but the letters are too big and there's drawings on there too.

So I just want to select one rectangle of letters and put them on a blank page.
Select the second rectangle of letters and put them on the blank page, too.

And then I'll resize that blank page to get the letters the size I want.

And then I'll copy it over and over until it is full.

Simple? Yes. Simple plan.

But I can't even get the first bit done.

I select a rectangle of letters and 'copy'.

I open another blank page and paste it in there. Good.

Then it goes wrong.

I can't select and copy and paste the next rectangle. It just doesn't appear.

Can someone please give me a leg up for starters and just tell me the keystrokes I need to get this thing done?

Is the layers thing messing things up or what?
