    Importing image into working file in CS6


    Hi there, I'm a newbie so forgive me if this is an obvious problem!

    I'm working on something in Photoshop CS6 and I need to import an image (it's a PNG) into it (I currently only have the background complete), but it won't just let me import an image. Here's what I'm doing:

    File> Import.
    It gives me the option to import "Video Frames to layers", "Notes...", or "WIA Support", but not just an image.

    When I press File>open, it opens the image as a brand new project (in a new panel along the top).

    What am I doing wrong!??
    Any help is greatly appreciated!
    Thanks so much!

    All you really need to do is to File->Open the .png file. Copy the contents by selecting all (Ctrl + A, Ctrl + C). And then in the other project/psd file you just paste it as a new layer with Ctrl + V.
