I’m confused

Why can't I do the second exercise in lesson 2, dynamic learning photoshop cs3

On page 29 it tells me pull up the pso2o4.psd file and open it in photoshop. Position the image so that you can see both the panoramic image and the bicycle rider image at the same time. Then Select the move tool then click and drag the bicycler image over and on top of the panoramic image. Do not release the mouse until you see a outline, or border, appear around the ps0201_work.psd document. I Never get this border. I have even tried other pictures and still nothing.
It then tells me if a paste mismatch box appears, leave it set to convert preserve color appearance, and press OK. I never get this box either. Seems like either I am missing something in the instructions, or something is set wrong, even though I started Photoshop with its default settings. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Again this is using the images from the cd in Dynamic Learning Photoshop CS3

  • Hi, Jeff,

    I'm working through the same exercise along with you; are you sure you don't get *some* sort of border around your panoramic "work".psd image after you drag the bicycler image onto it? We're not talking about the dancing ants/moving dotted line-type border.... this is more subtle.
    As for the Paste Profile Mismatch dialog /error message box, if you're not seeing it, you don't need to worry about it.... they included that instruction for the few people who might encounter it. It should be a nonissue for you if you're not seeing it.

    When you *do* release your mouse after dragging the bicycler onto the panoramic "work" image, are you able to click on the bicyler and drag him over to the right side of the panoramic image? If so, you're fine and are doing everything right.

    Hoping this helps; let me know.

    I reworked the exercise again today. I figured it out, I wasnt dragging the photo using move right. I have completed the exercise just a bit ago, and am real happy. This particular exercise is something I am going to try for my business webspace.
    Thanks Steve, it did help me a lot.
