Well... really depends on how you want it to look.

The easiest thing (also the most commonly used) to do is simply copy/paste the different images into your photoshop project, then move them around and adjust their opacity using the slider on the layers list.

There are many advanced techniques, such as masking, layer modes (multiple, dissolve, burn... etc) as well.

Again... I would need more information to tell you specifics. Perhaps an example would be helpful of what you want to do.

We're assuming you already have the photographs as digital images on your computer. If not, you'll need to digitize them somehow -- by scanning, or by sending them out to a digital photo service like Kodak's PhotoNet. There's good info online at www.photohighway.com -- click on the "Getting Started" feature from the homepage.

First, digitize the images you want to composite.
Then, save them as image files
Then, simply copy and paste them as separate layers
Then, adjust layering modes and transparencies

It would be nicer as you add desirable effects or filters

Best served for your self satisfaction as a learner in computer graphic field.
