I have the cards designed. I wondered if there is a simple PSD template so i can import my photos into layers with the standard poker card size of 63.5mm X 88.9mm or 3.5 x 2.5 inches.

I just want to add my photos print them out glue to a set of cards so i can test out my game. I can't seem to find a template.
Any help would be great.

Ok, did I understood you correctly?
You have all the cards designed, so you have finished images of cards, and now you want to place them in rows and columns on the A4 sized paper to print them?

If you have made your cards already in the original size of 63.5 x 88.9 mm then you can place 9 of them on one A4 paper (3 x 3). You don't need a PSD template for that since you can make your own just by placing cards inside the file that is sized as A4. Your images will automatically snap to each others. You can use guides though to set the better spacing between them (because of bleed).

I'm sorry if I didn't understood you correctly, but I am trying to help you out since I do lots of preparations for printing on my work, and thus know also how to make templates for easy editing, especially if the cards are needed.

If you set your cards on A4 label paper that is not cut, you can then, after printing, cut the cards following guides and stick them to anything, even on pieces of cardboard.

I did not design them in a set size. I did it in high resolution so I could adjust them to different sizes if I wanted to.

Looking for a template that has the right size for printing. So I all I will need to do is adjust the size of each photo's to fit the template so I can print it out

Ok, here is your template. It is a bit heavy for download since you asked to be 600 dpi (around 11.1 MB)

Inside the file you have:

- one large object that has a size of all 9 cards (3x3)
- one object sized as card with dimension you provided, set in the top left corner
- guides that you can use to snap your imported cards (your image will stick to them)
- cutting guides (you can make them a bit thinner if u wish)

Your PSD file:

If you can't see guides go to: view > show > guides (check out the option)

I can see the guides. Being a noob with photoshop, would you mind if i sent you a private email to ask simple questions on what you did?
