I am new to Photoshop, I am using version 5.5, and have mastered figuring out how to cut pictures. Now when I go to paste them on top of another picture they are usually too large. How do I resize pictures I have cut to place them into other pictures? Also is there a way to change angles on pictures once they have been pasted? Photoshop seems a lot more complicated then Microsoft picture it when it comes to resizing and layers.

First, the DPI (dots/pixels per inch) should be the same. If they are, then the pics should transfer nicely. If not, then revisit the original pics and establish a good DPI relationship on them. If the original is 600 DPI and the copy image is 300 DPI, then the picture will have to be resized by 50% to get it correct on the original. Do the math.

You can always manually resize the pic as well, using the control points, but it is less accurate.

Congrats on getting Photoshop, say goodbye to your free time! If you can manage it, I highly suggest a more curent version...there are a ton more very usefull tools in the newer vers.

When I cut and paste from one to another I make sure I am zoomed to the same % on both, that way they should be the same size. If you paste onto a new layer you can manipulate any layer any way you want. That is the beauty of layers.

Hope this helps...

That is because it is more powerful. Generally a program that allows more control will have more complicated controls. You will appreciate them once you learn them. Do a tutorial.
