I have a template of a magazine cover and after editing the text and inserting the image the title of the magazine "BRIDE" is on top of the image. I'd like to have it behind the girl's head, not on top of it. I re-arranged the layers but then it disappears from the image. It is still in the layers pallet but doesn't show in the image until I arrange to be ahead of the image layer. How can I move the title layer behind the girl and have it behind her head and not on top? Thanks.

OK. make every other layer invisible [By clicking on the eyes] but the girls. Then we'll know if the girl and the background are on the same layer or not.
I'm not sure if you know if they're on the same layer or not that's why I'm telling you to do this.

You mean there's nothing around her? You see checkerboard around her?

Oh OK.
Bring text on top so you can see it. Grab the eraser tool and try to delete the text. It'll ask "rasterize the type?" OK.
Then delete the text that is bothering you on top of her head.
I hope I could help.

Leave the "Bride" layer on top, so it covers the subject's face. Put a layer mask on the Bride layer. Paint on the mask with black to hide the letters where they overlap the girl's head.

Put the text layer over the girl. Then erase the part of the text layer that goes over her head. It will help to reduce the opacity of the text layer while you erase so you can see the girl's head through the text. Then, when you are done, return the opacity of the text layer to 100%

Ok did that...but that is cutting out some of the text,now you can't tell what the text is supposed to say. I want to be able to keep the text intact and just move it behind the girl's head. If I want to use the same template but on that bride have the text showing above her head and not on it then it will not be there, half will be erased out. I could choose a pic with a lot of head room so it doesn't cover her face but they wanted this particular one. I would just like to move it behind but it disappears totally when I move it.


Like you see People Magazine..the text is always behind the person.

When I paint over it it is not in black but erasing it...it is still cutting out the text to make it look like it is behind the girl..if I want to use it again on a different pic of the same bride then part of that text will be gone and be no use to me then. I just want to be able to put the layer behind the girl without erasing and cutting it up but when I move it, it disappears..any way to keep it from disappearing? Besides, when you erase it you can tell it has been erased and not fallen behind. Erase it then I could not adjust the layer around if I had to for another pic.
