I worked on this last night. I tried to follow the steps you placed in your post. There is something I am missing, because I was unable to do it.
As I understand your last post, you said to open the images that need to be edited in psd. One of the images used by the template is activeal-blue.gif. I am understanding that I open activeal-blue.gif and add it as a layer to blue.psd? Is that correct?
