I had PSE 7, and if I cut around e.g. a figure, I could easily add a
background by selecting the "use as Background" option.

In PSE 9, this option has disappeared - is there a similar method I could
use please? Your help appreciated.

Thanks

Phil

Worst case, add the new background as a layer under the foreground
elements.

Thanks Jeffrey. If this is the 'worst case' does anyone have a 'best case'
solution please?

TIA
