This video shows how to put together a simple card that displays several images. You can use Photoshop’s shape and distribution tools to create and arrange squares on the card. Next, bring in your images, and using options in the Layers panel, clip each image and its appropriate square together. You can then easily adjust the images to fit into the squares, and link the two layers to keep them joined. Understanding the power of the Layers panel allows you to combine shapes and images for almost infinite potential uses.
