How to separate and reposition select parts of image



I have a image with five separate icons i wish to separate and reposition. How would i achieve this? Would i use layers? and if so how do i put each icon into a layer.


i'm not really sure layers is the approach i need. But i wish to separate this png into 6 blocks each containing the different logos shown. I then would like to be able to move them around at will until i'm happy with their position and export

You need to first separate the elements you'd like to move into Photoshop layers.

  1. You should use the elliptical marquee tool (hold down the shift key) to select perfect circles.
  2. Once you select one circle press Cntrl J that will create a new layer with just the area you've selected

  3. Repeat step 1 and 2 for all the objects you need on separate layers

  4. Move the objects as needed
  5. Export them as separate files using slices or by copying and pasting into new files.
