What version of Photoshop are you using?

Dragging from the layers panel to a tab and the document not switching was an error in version 21.2.1 of Photoshop, but was fixed in 21.2.2 (the current version is 21.2.4).

 

In the current version, just drag from the layer panel onto the tab of the second document and pause while the focus switches to the second document (don't release the mouse button yet) , then continue to drag onto the image area and release the mouse button.

Sometimes keyboard shortcuts are easier & faster than the mouse.

 

  1. Open picture #1. 
  2. Click on the Move Tool (cross with arrows) in your left Toolbar.
  3. Select the layer in your Layers Panel and hit Ctrl/Cmd + A to select all. 
  4. Use Ctrl/Cmd + C to Copy contents to clipboard.  See Fig 1.  
    Fig. 1Fig. 1
  5. Switch to picture #2.
  6. Hit Ctrl/Cmd + V to paste.  Move as required.
