Creating a collage with PE2? - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I would like to learn how to create a collage of photos using Photoshop Elements 2. I have looked in several books on PE2 and cannot find anything about it. I don't want to simply put four or so photos together in one image. I would like to have a photo background (reduced opacity) and perhaps select out parts and feather the edges of each additional photo, and then put them on top of the background photo, so each additional photo appears vignetted against the background. Could you please recommend a source or tutorial on the web to learn how ...

    I would like to learn how to create a collage of photos using Photoshop Elements 2. I have looked in several books on PE2 and cannot find anything about it. I don't want to simply put four or so photos together in one image. I would like to have a photo background (reduced opacity) and perhaps select out parts and feather the edges of each additional photo, and then put them on top of the background photo, so each additional photo appears vignetted against the background. Could you please recommend a source or tutorial on the web to learn how to do this type of thing.
    Thanks.

    This tutorial doesn't include all of the elements (no pun intended) you mention, but I think you'll get some ideas. It may be for full Photoshop, but don't let that bother you; many things designed for the full version can be adapted without much, if any, modification. I found this one by doing a Google search for "collage tutorial Photoshop Elements." There were all kinds of hits. You might want to look at some of the others, too.
