To create this picture, I used PS Elements. My first picture (model clutching her coat) was not wide enough for me to layer the 2nd picture, so to solve this problem, I went into File>open, Image>canvas size and typed in the width of the additional area that needed to be added on the left side of the image. I then selected and copied a portion of the background (snow scene) and pasted it into the new expanded area of the frame. With the aid of the clone tool and smudge tool, I was able to create a seamless junction between the 2 images. I was then able to paste my second photo onto the left. I reduced its visibility by going into Layer Styles>Visibility>Ghost.
Hoped this helped and sorry, I should have added that this was a digital darkroom picture for those who may have thought it was something other.

Correction: The additional area was added onto the left side of the photo, not the right.
