I am new to photo editing and photoshop in general. I was tasked with creating a paper catalog using photos of transmission parts. I am trying to “stack” or “layer” a photo on top of itself. How do I achieve this in Elements 2019? Thanks in advance.

You would open a file with a suitable background. This would be your "canvas." In the Layers palette it will show up as Background Layer.

Next, make a selection of  part #1, and copy/paste it to the background. It will come in on a separete layer.

Repeat for part #2.

Activate the move tool to position parts 1&2.

Repeat for parts #3, 4, etc.
