First, open your quickpage file and the image you want to use in photoshop.  This tutorial will show how to use a quickpage that has a transparent area.  If your quickpage has an area of solid color, use this tutorial.  In the image file, check the size of the image (image->image size).  Make sure that the image size is in the same ballpark as the quickpage.  Comparing the pixel dimemsions is the quickest way to be sure they are of similar sizes.  Then copy the image into the quickpage file:

1.  ctrl-a will select the entire image

2.  ctrl-c will copy the image

3.  Go to the quickpage file and do ctrl-v to paste

When you paste the image it will be on top on the quickpage.  To adjust this, drag the image layer in the layers palette to below the quickpage

Now your image should be in the empty space left in the quickpage.  To adjust the image size, be sure the image is highlighted in the layers palette, and hit ctrl-t to transform the image.  This will allow you to drag the corners of the image to whatever size you would like.  Hold down the shift button while dragging to maintain the proper ratio.  If you want, you can add a text layer with the date or a small title.  And now you are finished!
