If you go to the lower left corner of an image and click on the doc thingy, you can see picture’s information.
The doc here is the same size on both sides, meaning no layers have been added. As you add layers, the number on the right side of the / becomes larger because it’s taking up more memory. The left side will shrink, representing the flattened image. When creating composites, you must pay attention to pixel size when bringing 1 image into another. Looking at the image info of ps0402.psd, you notice it’s the same size so you want to decrease the size.
Go to Image, & scroll to Image Size.
You can change the width, height, & whatever. You can see that the proportions are linked so they change together.
Switch to the move tool in order to drag. You can also add images by going to 1 of the tabs and dragging it to the other. And adjust the size by pressing Command+T. Notice that Copy-Pasted stuff automatically become layers.
Remember to press return or click the check mark on top whenever you finish adjusting one of the dragged images.

You can see some of the white still there on the edges. Make sure you’re still on the rooster tab, go to Layers, Matting, then Defringe. Leave it at one pixel. The white edge will disappear & blend in with the background.
Now go to the type tool and select 72 point size.
