I just upgraded a very old version of Elements to the new 2021 version.  I like to use psd templates for scrapbooking.  I've always used the "place" command and then control G to snap a photo into the appropriate place in the template.  When I tried this today, I was shocked to find that this no longer works ... and some "group" stuff comes up that I don't have a clue about.  I can't for the life of me figure out how to get a photo into the photo template.  Can someone help??  Thanks so much!

Adobe changed the Create Clipping Mask shortcut starting in pse 15, because pse 15 added Layer Groups and the shortcut Cmd+G or Ctrl+G is used to Group Layers (create Layer Group or Layer Set) https://www.essential-photoshop-elements.com/layer-groups.html The new Create Clipping Mask shortcut is Option+Cmd+G (mac) or Alt+Ctrl+G (windows)
