How do I transfer one image, to the shape of another?

A portion of our logo has a particular shape to it.

I want to be able to place another image into it, superimpose I suppose.

Attached is the shape of our logo.  Sorry about the edging.  I want to be able to place another image such as the other one attached so it "replaces" the green in the logo.

 

I think you do it with Masks, but not sure.  I have another software package that is old-hat, that can do it, but it would be better if I can do it in Photoshop Elements.

Iv'e done it to show what I mean, but in the other software, which doesn't make it easy to do it and adjust... which PS might do.

IMO the png file you posted is not a good Logo file. For all the is defined  are the three green shapes. The there is not 7 and 9 shapes soe the PNG file will not work as a round logo. It is not round ar all. You can clip an Image to it and add a lower Circle Colo layer to fill in the 79

You can:

 

1. Open your background image

 

2, Go to File>Place to insert the logo.

   (resize to taste and click the Grren Checkmark)

 

3. Double click the background layer thumbnail in the layers panel to

    make it a Normal Layer and drag it above the Logo layer

 

4. Right click the Logo layer and click Create Clipping Mask

 

5. Add a new blank layer and go to Layer<New>Background from Layer

Simon, you are actually posting in the Photoshop forum, and not the Photoshop Elements forum, so some of the advice you receive might not work for you.   I personally know almost nothing about Elements, so can't tell you where the two applications overlap or differ.

Hi ,

I've moved your post from the Photoshop forum to the Photoshop Elements forum where you are more likely to get help with your issue that is relevant to that version, although I notice Jeff's reply uses Elements
