This seems somewhat simple to make but i don't know how to split a photo up into fours or trios -- then angle the photos. It looks like the end of each picture at the angle has a blended colorless stroke? how do i complete that?

Thank you.

This is a simple process, and, as always with Photoshop there are many ways to do this.

Here's one.

I use a simple image clipped to a rectangle layer with a background.

White rectangle on a layer above the background layer.

Then an image placed above the white rectangle layer with a clipping mask.
Highlight the image layer you want to clip to the rectangle layer below, then right click and select "create clipping mask".

In the next post I will explain how to make and angle the white rectangles.

First I set up the background.
Then I added some guidelines to help make the rectangle.

Then I used the Rectangular Marquis Tool to create a rectangle along the guidelines.

Then I went to SELECT > TRANSFORM SELECTION

I held down the shift key a dragged the upper right hand corner transform handle 15 degrees of rotation to the right.

Hold the Option/Alt key and drag the upper center transform handle upwards so the rectangle is larger than the edges of the image.
Hit the checkmark or enter to accept the state change.

Fill this new selection with white.

Clear your guidelines.
Duplicate the slanted/angled rectangle 3 more times.

Use the Move Tool to position the rectangles evenly.

Not how the BG can be seen as though there were transparent strokes.

All that's left to do is to add some images above each of the slanted rectangles and add the clipping masks.

This is great, thanks!!! Having trouble filling them in with white...am I making them with that clipping mask process?
You can use the Paint Bucket Tool to fill it with the Foreground color..........which should be white.........hit D on you keyboard.
If the foreground color is white, you can also hit Option/Alt + Delete to fill with foreground color. Com/Cntrl + Delete will fill it with the background color. Hitting X on the keyboard will alternate the foreground and background colors.

Or you can use EDIT > FILL (shift + Delete) and choose white.
