HELP!!! Multiple exposures in photoshop


It's been forever since I've been on here and I need some help from all you Photoshop guru's out there. Is it posible to take 2 photos in PS and combine them one on top of the other?
I don't know if this will help but I'm rocking Photoshop Elements 4.0, I'm sure once I get the basic how to on this I can experiment with opacity an most the other things; I'm just looking to get one layer from one photo and place it on another "different" photo.
If not, is there a way to eleminate all of the backround nd cut and paste my subect on the othr photo?
Thank you for any help!!!!
Justin S.

  Hello Justin,

There are many ways to accomplish what you want to do. It is the end result that dictates what method to use.

To answer your question " I'm just looking to get one layer from one photo and place it on another "different" photo. "

Open both photos in PS. Make sure you can see both windows.
Using the move tool, simply drag one photo from one window to the other.
Basic drag and drop.
You will now have 2 layers.

What you want to do with it now is another story. :)


Pete

Justin S.   Well, What i'm wanting to do is make a double exposure of a Pitcher throwing a baseball. I use to shoot with the Minolta Maxxum7 film camera which had the multiple exposure option on the camera.
Now that I've went digital I shoot the Maxxum7D and lost that feature. I set up my tripod and took the shots and i'm looking for info on how to combine them Perfectly one on top of the other with the least "behind the computer time" as possible.
I'm going to try the way you told me Pete, and see how it works.
Thank you all for your help, any more tips or advice is much apreciated...
