This is just like the Lowering Tutorial for the first few steps.

Step 1.

Select the Quick Mask Edit Mode.

Step 2.

Select the brush tool, and make sure the foreground color is Black.

Step 3.

Fill in the lower area with the paint brush. The quick mask mode will show red as you are doing it.

Step 4.

Get out of quick mask mode and back into standard edit mode.

You should now have the "marching ants" around the part you didn't fill in.

Step 5.

With this selection, copy and paste, which will give you a new layer with that on it. I named it "body."

Step 6.

Now just move the "body" layer up to where you want it.

Step 7.

Now you need to clean everything up by using the brush and clone stamp tools.

That's pretty much it. I'll do one more step and add some wheels.

Step 8.

Google some wheels and select them from the picture and copy and paste them.

Ok, just checking the differences on google and it doesn't look like there is the Quick Mask Mode. You can still select the body (or any other object for that matter), by using the Marquee Tools. the Quick Mask Mode is just the 'quick' and easy way to select things.

Here is a comparison of the toolbars. You can see there are a few tools missing from the Elements toolbar.

Do you want to actually move the layer in the Layers Window or do you want to move what's on the layer?

If you want to move the layers within the Layer Window just click and drag the layer above or below the other layers.

If you want to move what is selected on the layer, with that layer selected simply pick the "Move Tool" which is the Arrow at the top right of the examples above and click and drag or use the arrow buttons.

Did that help?

Yes that helped. One more question, how do fill the entire area below the body line? I try to fill it in with just the paint brush but then when I move the layer you can see a shadow of everything I filled in.

Thanks
