    It is possible to make a collage manually and its quite easy.

    Click File >> Open and select all of your photos

    That will add them to the project bin

    Then select File >> New >> Blank File

    Select background color White (or whatever you prefer) and add your width and height for your final image (set resolution 72 for web usage or 240 to 300 for printing) then click OK

    In the project bin click your first photo and drag it up into the main window on top of your new background.

    Click on the move tool and click in the center of the photo and drag to arrange it where you want on the background - you can hold down the shift key to maintain original proportions whilst dragging the corner handles of the bounding box to get the size you want.

    Do the same with the next photo (drag it up into the main window) and use the move tool to position it. Then continue with each image.

    Finally Click Layer >>Flatten image and save as jpeg. (Save as PSD if you want to preserve the layers for editing again)

     

     

    N.B. as you add images they get dropped in the center. So you need to use the move tool to drag them apart. Click in the middle of one and move it around, and then the others until you get them positioned as you want.

     

    When you click again with the move tool a bounding box appears around the image and you can drag out the corner handles to re-size your photos. Hold down the shift key when dragging the corner handle and that will maintain the proportions of the original.

    I think the best way to do so would be to find a script that does that. All you would have to do then is to open your files and then drag and drop the script.

    After dragging and dropping your picture did you select the move tool from the top of the tools pallet?

     

    When you click with the move tool inside the image a bounding box apears and you can drag the corners to scale as well as moving the image around to place it in the position you want. You have to do it separately for each image by selecting the layer which holds each image. If you cant see the layers pallet click the menu: Window >> Layers
