You can open the render on a different photoshop tab, copy it, and then paste it in the signature tab

Another way is dragging the render image from your folder directly to the signature window.

If you still need help, I'll make a detailed instruction list.

Hi jin. There are plenty of ways to add another photo in your photoshop files.

The basic, you can add using the Place Menu. Click File > Place... then choose the desired image that you want to place. Then press enter if the image finally loads.

NOTE: What the poster is referring to as the desired render is an image that is edited for example an image with no background.

Since the image that you load from the Place Menu becomes a smart object, you need to right click that layer and click Rasterize Layer. Then you can finally edit.

And for the other way, you can follow John_Titor's post.

To open an image to a different tab, this one is pretty simple:


Click File > Open... and click on the desired image then click the Open button.

Or, click, hold, and drag the desired image to the empty space beside a tab. A popup + Copy will appear, then release the image.


NOTE: Since your newly opened image is flattened (Background Lock), double click that layer. The New Layer dialog box will appear, click OK. Then you can finally edit the opened image.

To copy image to another tab:


Press CTRL+A, then copy and paste it to the desired tab.

To copy portions of the image, you can use the Marquee, Lasso, Magic Wand and Pen Tool, then copy and paste it to the desired tab. (If you want to know how to use those tools, I think there are other tutorials here that teaches you how to).



To copy image directly to the desired tab:


You can use the Place Menu I mentioned earlier.

Or, you can follow what John_Titor said. It's like an easier way to use Place Menu. Again, it's a smart object so you need to rasterize it to edit the image.

xuei-san, do you happen to use CS6? i dont know what's the "paintbucket" there.

xuei-san, do you happen to use CS6? i dont know what's the "paintbucket" there.

Yes, I do. The Paint Bucket Tool is a Fill Tool in MS Paint, I think. You can see the symbol of the Paint Bucket Tool in the step 5 of the tutorial. It's usually located in the left side area, it's on the Toolbar. Check the icons on the Toolbar by hovering each icons. If the tooltip says Paint Bucket Tool, then that's it. But if it's not displayed, it's probably hidden.

To display the Paint Bucket Tool again:


Look for the Gradient Tool or 3D Material Drop Tool on the Toolbar, click and hold the tool. It's submenu will appear, then click the Paint Bucket Tool to display and use it.

Or Shift+G so you can toggle between those tools (Paint Bucket, Gradient, and 3D Material Drop Tool).



NOTE: You can toggle between subtools by pressing the Shift+<Tool Key>. To know the tool key, hover the tool/icons on the Toolbar. A tooltip will appear displaying the name of the tool along with it's tool key enclosed with parentheses.

Though I'm not really sure as to what you are referring to as you don't know.

So here's what i mean:

My insert image icon is not working so i make it as an attachment instead

I see. Then this answers your problem. THe tool that you pointed out is the Gradient Tool. The Paint Bucket Tool is hidden. Just follow the instructions. :)
