You just bought a brand new fighter jet (when you apparently already had a perfectly good one sitting in the hangar behind your house), you’re sitting in the cockpit, and you’re radioing the tower asking how to start it up and fly a sortie?

Oh, boy…that’s a lot to answer. Have you taken the time to explore all the menus, try all the tools, read through the PDF manual and/or Help files? What you want (notice: no "h" in there 😉 :)) to do isn’t that hard, really, but you have to get a grip on the basics. There are literally thousands of places online that have ready-made tutorials that will walk you through those basic techniques, step-by-step.

All you have to do is hit the Google. Try this format for seaching:photoshop tutorial poster|collage|composite

Any time. But get the basics together as per above, then come back with more specific questions that we can actually get a handle on.

Just to give you a head start on the last: For book and magazine print a resolution of 300 ppi is usually required. For posters you can go lower according to the viewing distance – if it’s a really big one you can sometimes go as low as 25 ppi.

Get Picasa it’s free, and easy to use. You don’t buy a $600 program for something as simple as that unless you are prepared to learn it.

If you want someone to "do it for you" you would need to pay them and this is not a commercial site but a user to user forum. Most on-line printing services offer something like this as part of their products.
