I know how to make a template from a outside JPG, I was taught that here some time back. I have never been able to become fluid with PSE15 so I am always reaching out somewhere else or here to learn what I need.

Thank you for your help. I get that fine. My problem is that I need to have the same shape numerous times.

EXAMPLE: Lets say the Hexagon shape. I need to have like 30 of the on a page at 2 inches big.

I need to be able to insert a different picture into each one. How do I do that please? With what you gave me, I can only figure on how to do one at a time per page. Thank you again

Now, go to File>new>blank file. Enter the dimensions to accommodate the 30 pictures. Select Background color to suit. This will be your canvas.

Go to File>Place, point to Picture #1 and place and position picture #1 on the canvas.

Repeat for pics. 2-30.

You may find it helpful to have the grid open (View menu>grid) for orientation. The grid will not print.
