How to insert photos

Photo Insertion Instructions for Photoshop CS and Creative Cloud Users:
1.) Open the Paper and Camera template you would like to use in Photoshop.
2.) In your layers palette click on the clipping mask you would like to use first.
3.) Go to "File" located on the top horizontal menu bar.
4.) Choose "place" and retrieve the photo(s) you would like to use. Your photo will be placed into your template. Your photo layer should now be above your clipping mask layer within your layers palate.  It is important that your photo layer is always above your clipping mask layer within the layers palette.
5.) With your mouse move your photo on top of your clipping mask and begin to resize your photo to fit the size of your clipping mask. Make sure you hold down the "shift" key on your keyboard as you drag the corners to scale your photo. The photo should completely cover the clipping mask so that none of the clipping mask is showing.
6.) In your layers palette, right click on your photo layer and choose "create a clipping mask."  Your photo is now inside your clipping mask and you can position the photo as you would like.
