Do the math and determine how much H & W you will require for the 2 pics Go to File>new>blank file. Enter H & W, resolution 240px/in Go to File>place and point to pic A. Do the same for pic B. Position the pics to fill the canvas.

Suester,

Use one of the selection tools, e.g. lasso tool, selection brush, to select the object. You should see an outline surrounding it when the selection is complete

Go to Edit>copy to place it on the clipboard

Open the other picture (B)

Go to Edit>paste

In the Layers palette B will be the Background layer and A will show up above B

Activate the Move tool to position A on B, and to resize if necessary with the corner handles
