2. Look at the settings line. Make sure that there is a checkmark in the field Auto Select Layer:
3. Now you can nu click on each of the figures and drag them around on the picture area. Try that. Photoshop figures automatically out in which layer the figure is.
4. The area outside the figures is transparent. Try to arrange the figures to make the picture look about like this:
