Image size on different layers linked?

Hi, I'm having a frustrating problem trying to remove myself from a photo.  I found the only way to remove my shadow as well is to cut out the parts of the image that I want, then place that over another image of the same background without me in it.  So I have 1 layer mask with the desired subject in one image and another layer with a different image of the same background.  The problem is the 2 images appear to be different sizes (thus, the background details don't match up), and when I try to re-size one image (on its own layer) photoshop also re-sizes the other image on the other layer.  I have done nothing to link these layers or images together.  I have tried re-importing the background image because that seems to be the only time I can fine-tune the size... however Ps won't allow me to see my layer mask at the same time as I am re-sizing the new image.  As soon as I click on anything other than the new image (to re-order layers) I am no longer able to drag the new image by its corner.  I'm sure there's something stupid that I'm missing here, can anyone help?

It the two layers are sufficiently similar, use Edit > Auto-Align. Both layers need to be highlighted/selected, but the bottom layer is the "anchor".

 

If not - Edit > Transform > Scale (or Distort, as appropriate). This affects only the highlighted layer. It might help to set the top layer to 50% opacity when matching up.

That option is greyed out...

I managed to solve the problem by starting over and re-importing both images, ordering layers in a way that let me see both images while importing the second one.  I haven't used Ps since before it was subscription-based and the learning curve is steep!

Ideally, you should be working with duplicate copies of the same sized layers (Ctrl / Cmd + J).
