Sometimes you may want to put text or a logo behind a foreground element in a photograph to add some dimension to the image. Here’s the fast way: Go to Select>Subject from the top menu, which will make a selection around the object in the photo. Press Command-J (PC: Ctrl-J) to copy the selected area to a new layer. Now, in the Layers panel, grab your text or logo layer and drag it so it’s between the background and the copied subject layer. You have now sandwiched the logo or type between the layers and you can position it anywhere behind the subject.
