How do you get the photo to 'merge' into the template. I see some siggies where the photo overlaps the 'frame' or whatever on the template and then the other side the template overlaps the photo. I hope this isn't confusing. I just have no clue how to do that..

You mean where the photo sticks out of the frame a little bit? You duplicate the photo layer so that you have two copies of the same thing. Move one underneath the frame and keep the other on top of the frame. The one that is underneath the frame you clip to be frame-sized like normal. Then, the one that is on top you do a cutout and leave just the cutout part (whether it be an arm or a head or whatever) sticking out of the frame. Hope that makes sense!

lol this is confusing.. maybe try going into the maker's galleries and show us examples of what you want to figure out and that will help us know what you mean, then you can be like "see how the pink frame is over the chair" (just a RANDOM example lol)

I would usually have the photo underneath my frame. then cut around the bits you want to overlap the frame. I use my lasso tool so it has marching ants around it. Then i promote that selection to a new layer and move that new layer over the frame.
