to merge a photo into 1 hexagon, I just open a new document, open the photo I want. Then I select all on the new document and copy the photo. Then I would go back to my hexagon and just go to edit--> paste special --> paste into. However, say I want to put a photo into multiple hexagons at once. The hexagons are actually all together if that makes it easier. So the natural thing to do is to repeat what I did above. So I copy my image as before. However, when I hit ctrl+ click on my hexagon (call it hex 1), then hit ctrl+click on my next hexagon, the hex 1 becomes unhighlighted (by unhighlighted, I mean there is no more dashed lines on the border). So I looked online and tried another method. I got to the actual layer box and hit select and click on first and last one. Now all of them are selected (including the hexagon boxes in between the first and last one). So I have selected them all but when I go to edit--> paste special, the "paste into" option doesn't work. There is only "paste into place" option. I am wondering what I did wrong. One thing I did notice though is even when I selected all the layers, I don't see any of the dashed lines on the border of the hexagon like I usually do when I hit ctrl+click on just one hexagon. I am not sure if that is the problem. Can anyone help me? Sorry, I am new to Photoshop.
