First off my school is stupid for making us save photoshop creations as jpegs (or else this wouldn't have happened). I was doing the middle school yearbook and I was forced to save my file as a jpeg because I thought I was done (the teacher agreed) and when done I have to delete the original file to save disk space (pentium 3 computers are used for photoshop at my school... I still can't figure out why...). Well it turns out I need to make some adjustments and since I now have it as a jpeg it doesn't have layers anymore. I tried several times to fix it and failed miserably. I'm hoping that someone at MacRumors can save me, as this page took so much time to make. All that needs to be done is a picture needs to be moved and another picture needs to be taken out and the gradient behind them needs to be fixed after both of the aforementioned have happened.

I have included a half size version of what needs to happen.

The two page collage has been uploaded to Gigasize here (http://www.gigasize.com/get.php/272911/7th_grade_collage.zip) (sorry about all the adds there, it was the best free one I could find that didn't require people to wait for a long time)

Please help, the deadline for this project is fastly approaching.

That's rough. It'll take a long time for someone to do that.

They'd have to select each person and the pictures and turn them into separate layers. It's easy but it takes a lot of time.

And that's the one thing that I don't have :(. It took long enough to make this page, let alone have to fix it with something this major.

preferably by tomorrow at 9:45AM EST as that's when I leave for school and I have the class tomorrow. And I just need the gradient to look reasonably good and the photo that has to be moved has to have the face past the cutoff line of the first or second page (this is a 2 page collage). Thanks :).

Ok well, one question, I got rid of th eone image and moved the one down, hoping thats what you wanted. Should i moe it to the right by the two boys and than get rid of the box outline and fix the gradient? If id get rid of the outline with them ventered have of the picture of the girl in the upper right would be missing. Hopefully im doing something mroe or elss right.

The reason the one picture needs to be moved is because the cutoff for the second page cuts her face in two and that's not what the yearbook people want. And the gradient was what was throwing me off too.
