          This forum is intended to specifically support the Photoshop Getting Started experience, and in the future you'll likely get a faster response in the Photoshop forum. That said, here's what you want to do:


          1. Open Photoshop
          2. Select File, New
          3. Enter the size you want, you may need to change the size drop down to pixels
          4. Clock OK to create the blank canvas
          5. Select File, Place, this will let you select the image to insert


          I'll just add that if you want to create a web page slideshow, then you probably want to use Photoshop to edit or resize the images, and then Dreamweaver to actually build the web pager slideshow.
