1. Click on the layer in the Layers Panel that contains the object you want to resize

2. Choose the Move Tool.

3. Move the mouse cursor over one of the four corners of the object until it turns into a diagonal double-headed arrow.

4. Click and drag the corner to resize the image proportionally (so it looks nice).

5. Or click and drag on one of the sides (a horizontal or vertical double-headed arrow) to make it stretch in that direction (but that usually makes it look not so nice)

If you have Elements 2019, you can use the double-exposure Guided Edit to create something like this:

Hello,

As mentioned by Greg_S.​, you can try out the Double Exposure Guided Edit. It's available in Photoshop Elements 2018 and Photoshop Elements 2019.

Thanks,

Medha

After using Hatstead's method, lower the opacity of the face layer.

If this is not the effect you want, please clarity.
