Thanks for the help I can get
Yes you should put each element or photo in a seperate layer.
To adjust the photo you select the "move" at the top left of the tool box.
Make sure you have your photo layer selected, not the background. Adjust the photo by using the cursors in the corners and drag them down. If you don't see the "box" around the photo you may need to zoom out(if your photo is really big).
You shodl look at the courses they have here. The Photoshop elements courses are on sale right now. They really help. I started that way too.
