So I have two images, and I want to put them into one big image. What I did was I

  1. Cut the contents of one image.
  2. Increased the canvas size of the other image to x2.
  3. Pasted the image I have.
  4. Tried to use the move tool to place the pasted layer.

When I move the pasted layer around, it goes behind the transparency layer on the canvas. How do I make that not happen?

Add a new layer and then paste the floating layer into it.
