To get the basics of mastering ArtStudio, one can find help in a Photoshop tutorial. The tools have identical names and functions.
Not white, not black just passionate shades of grey...

If I want to load two photos each into its own layer, I can Load one, Add a layer, and import the other. Can someone tell me how I can then offset one layer from the other (so that they do not precisely overlap)? Or crop one layer and not another? I want to create a montage of portions of photos. Can I do this with layers as in Photoshop where each layer is a photo with adjustments made independently?

Thanks. Can someone tell me how I can then offset one layer from the other (so that they do not precisely overlap)? Or crop one layer and not another?

Are you referring to making a collage of pics? if so, take a look at stackpad in the app store and see if that is what you are trying to accomplish.
Also look at this thread and see if this is what you wanted
StackPad Wallpaper Designer
Roughly , yes, but with more control over each photo (brightness, contrast, transparency, etc.). I have ArtStudio and was trying to find a way to do this but the layers don't seem to be entirely independent (unless I'm missing something).
I think I understand. Once you import your pic per layer...tap on Layers tab @ bottom then tap desired layer then a pop will appear and then choose "transform".
There is also a transparency slider at bottom to tweak also.
That seems to work except for 2 things. One minor problem is that if you use Transform and then want to move the layer while in Landscape mode, the arrows still operate as if in portrait orientation. Obviously that is a minor issue. A bigger (or at least more tedious problem) is that moving a layer (or rotating or scaling) requires that you repeatedly hit the arrow keys (or scale buttons) in order to adjust one pixel at a time. Holding it down does not auto-repeat. It would be great if you could just use your finger to position the layer or two finger to scale and rotate as well as have the option of entering a pixel amount or angle and have it make the transform.
