Layers Question
Ok, I feel really dumb having to ask this but I'm so confused.

I have a picture with a bunch of Christmas ornaments in a line. We had a lot of animals we fostered this year, and I'm trying to take a circular picture of each of them and put each face in a different ornament. I know I need to use a separate layer for each picture which is fine, but I'm running into trouble making the layer. I can make a 300x300 layer with a white background and paste the face in just fine, but if I try to make the layer transparent, its like its locked and I can't interact with it at all, much less paste the image in. There's a little circle with a line across it which keeps me from moving or selecting it at all.

I need to make it transparent because the picture is a circle, and the layer is a square.

Hope that makes sense- if anyone can help me, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

Ok, I think I figured it out, at least well enough to get what I wanted done. This can be locked or deleted if you want.

RE: Layers Question
Can you maybe post up a screenshot of your layer making problem?

Then I can maybe whip up a quick pictorial or vidoe tutorial.
