  1. 3. Position the embedded image. Use the Selection Tool to drag the image onto the banner. If you need to resize the image, pull or push on the handles (small boxes) at the corners of the image. You can also use the directional arrows on your keyboard to nudge the image into place.

  2. Layers Palette. When you check the Layers Palette, you will notice that the embedded image is added as a sublayer of the original Background layer. If we had several layers in our project image, we could determine which layer to embed the image onto by first selecting that layer before embedding the image.

  3. Repeat the three previous steps for any other images you wish to add.

  4. Save your image. From the Menu bar, click File > Save to save your changes to your web banner image.

In the next tutorial, we will add the text to our banner.
