The photo representing a part of the town will serve as a background. Open it in a new window: File – Open (ctrl+o) and mark it out with Rectangular Marquee Tool, make a copy of it: Edit – Copy (ctrl+c) and get back to the original file to insert the copy on a new layer: Edit – Paste (ctrl+v). You may correct the photo’s sizes if that is necessary, selecting just the command Edit – Free Transform (ctrl+t).
