How to combine photos in Photoshop Elements: step 1

1 Create a new document
Go to File>New>Blank File, and from the drop-down menu choose a suitable document size for all your images (we chose A3 from the International Paper options). Rotate the canvas 90°, go to Edit>Fill Layer and choose Black.

Next, go back to your original document and paste the image onto it (Ctrl+V).

4 Final adjustments
By repeating steps 2 and 3 for each image you’ll have the basic composite, but you may need to rotate individual layers to make them fit with the images around them. Select them and go to Image>Rotate>Free Rotate Layer.
