How to make collage with Photoshop8

I've been traveling a lot and have turned to photo documenting outfits so that I can pack quickly. And I'd like to report that as the month has just come to an end, it's worked out quite well and helped streamline all sorts of decisions.  I'm gonna keep it up and I highly recommend it for getting you out of your clothing ruts.

Also, I just learned how to make a photoshop collages and don't want to have to relearn next year so here's the play-by-play:

File--> New--> blank--> US paper.  This gets the template.

Next, open the file you want to collage with. Drag little image icon from BIN.  Drop it onto blank.

To resize and position your images. go to top bar, Image--> Transform -->Free Transform

tracer box will show up around image.  Drag the vertices at sides and/or corners.

To overlap just the way you want, move position of images in Layers tray.

Add Font. (Milk and Cereal 110pt. in Red)
Merge Layers. Save.
