I create some drag and drop templates in my past and cannot remember how I did the boxes and what I used.  All I have to do is drop a photo into them, I do not need to use a clipping mask.  Can someone refresh my memory on how to do this in PSE? I can only find tutorials of how to use already created drag and drop templates.

The key here are clipping masks. 

Just drag the images from the photo bin onto your canvas- they will look messy, but dont worry about it.

The max number of photos in a pre made template is 8 (the ones included in the program-- I've found it easier to make my own with clipping masks. 

Drage your images one at at time to the layer abouve whatever shape you want them to appear in. 2021-06-08_155305.jpg

This is a better image of the stacking:   Repeat after me: IMAGE ABOVE SHAPE. Get it stacked properly, make your clipping masks, then make it look purty.

Just a little effort to make it shine.

No. I did NOT use clipping masks.  I use those for other templates, but the document I show, I did not use clipping masks.  There was a new drag and drop feature to make them.  I just can't seem to find it anymore.

Other designers talk about new pocket templates that they sell that have drag and drop boxes with NO clipping mask needed, but they do not tell you how they made them.  Somehow I figured it out back then.

To refresh your memory, you probably used some simple frames to create the templates.
