Newbie question
I have tried reading the tutorials online, but it seems to be filled with a lot of jargon I do not fully understand. All I want to do is have some fun putting faces from one photo onto another photo. I open two images as layers, and select the fact from the second picture I loaded.

I use the lasso tool to select the fact that I want to move.

Here is where I run into problems. I want the face to stay, and the rest of the image to disapear. I try to use the paint bucket, but It will only allow me to paint the face, not the rest of the image. When I try to use the move tool, the entire image moves, but the selection stays where it was and is no longer around the face.

This seems like it should be a very easy thing to do, but I fear my photo editing skills are basicly limited to what I have done in MS paint.

While I see if anyone can help me, I will continue to watch youtube videos and read more posts on here/other tutorials.

Thanks so much for the help.
