The easiest way with PSD would be to double the canvas width, leaving the existing artwork to one side. Then paste in the companion.

For example, if you start with the front, leave it on the right, and paste the back to its left. If there is an inside, have page 2 at left and the inside back cover at right.

Do this for each leaf (two pages front and back). And if crop or printers’ marks are needed, this does not provide for them.

Before submitting the file(s), print them out, even in miniature, and make sure they fold up correctly. (It helps to make a dummy before starting if there are many pages.)

Good luck.
