the new file, right click and chose Edit>Paste. Please remember to
check layers and see if you need to add layer for all pasted

Then check if image and logo are in the place where it works for the size
of the document. If you need to move it around or resize it, chose
move or scale tools form the toolbox. The next thing to do is to
insert text into the image. Go to task document, select the text and
copy parts that you need.

Edit and align the text. This can be done in a number of ways, either by
using move tool, dragging the text boxes till you’re happy with the

of the image and drag the guide to where you’d like the text to
start/finish) or use align too which is in the same place as move

right of the move tool icon.
