Hey all,
For the past 20 mins I've trying to copy a layer from one PSD to the next but to no avail.
I'm a PS noob so please could someone tell me the steps in which to achieve this short term goal :)

Select the layer and select from the menu:

Layer -> Duplicate layer...

Then choose document and name of the copied layer.

If both files are opened simply drag your layer to the other file.

But you have to drag it on the canvas, dragging to the tab doesn't work.
