I remember how stumped I was on this! After you enlarge the image, if
you do layer to image size you'll be happy. The reason that you can
only see above the old image is because its layer only exists there. If
you expand the image, the layer doesn't change unless you tell it too
separately. It's ok to have layers different shapes and sizes and
smaller than the image. Or you can paste as a layer.
