Combining Two Photos into One Page in Photoshop Elements
Sometimes those of us who have been doing this for a while can forget how confusing this graphics stuff can be for people just starting out. A simple task like combining two photos into a single document is probably second nature for us, but for the beginner it's not always so obvious.

With this tutorial, I will show brand new Photoshop Elements users, how they can combine two photos onto one page. This is something you might want to do to show a before and after version of an image correction, or just to compare two pictures side-by-side. you'll also learn how to add some text to the new document, as this is another basic task that a new user may wish to learn.

To follow along, download the two practice files and open them in the Photoshop Elements Editor, standard edit mode. (Right click on the links to save the files to your computer.)

The two photos should appear at the bottom of the Editor window in the Photo Bin.

Next you'll need to create a new, empty document to combine the photos into. Go to File > New > Blank File, and click the menu next to "Preset :" and choose the 1024 x 768 preset, then click OK. The new empty document will appear in your workspace and in the Photo Bin.
