Question selecting a layer and moving it
I am having a hard time trying to add a logo to a picture. I open the picture, then I open the logo as a layer and it pops into the center of the photo. Problem is, I don't want it positioned in the center, so how do I select it and move it around to where I want it? Even when the layer is highlighted I can't figure out which tool will let you grab it. Thanks for the help!

Note that by default, it moves (autoselects, actually) the layer which isn't transparent where you click, so you won't move it by clicking on the transparent background on the layer (unless you check the "Move active layer" option in the Tool options).

Thanks! Sorry it took me a while to say it, though...
