Hey, can someone help me out here?

I'll start off by saying I use GIMP.

I was trying to place a Pujols picture on the canvas after the first few steps and a few messages came up.

JPEG Image message came up basically saying plug in couldn't open this image. Said "no such file or directory."

Anyone know what could be the problem?

Thanks everyone. Glad to see that some people got some new ideas.

Lax, I used this image which is also pretty busy. Just make sure you desaturate it and change the blending mode and it should blend in better ;-D.

Just started using Photoshop CS8...from the GIMP :-P

How do I copy a background image and paste it behind my player layer?

Great work BTW...although I didn't get very far before I was clueless :-D

Have both windows open (the background image, and sig file)...then click the background image and drag it onto the sig flie. Hope you can follow that.
