ok use the magic wand tool to select the white around the girl, press delete, and save that picture as a .png. That file type allows for transparency.

Then add a new layer to the image you want it on top of and open your other image. Select aroudn the girl with the magic wand, press Cntrl+I(invert) do Cntrl+C(Copy) and paste on the background of your choosing.

When using the magic wand, :MagicWandTool: , change the tolerance at the top whatever you want.

When pasting to the new layer, make sure you select keep canvas size.

When resizing the girl to fit the picture, hold shift to keep the aspect ratio of the original
