You have to save the photoshop file as either a .png (with transparency if you need to) or as a .tga (also with transparency if needed).

Then back in SL you press Ctrl+U to get to the upload dialog, where you find the file you saved and upload it.

The file comes in as a texture that you have to apply to a clothing layer of choice in world.

Transparency are those parts where you want the avatar skin to show, or some other clothing item that is layered below the one you are making. Like the part of the arm, on a short sleeved shirt, which are not supposed to have anything on it.

Have a look at this page - http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Clothing_Tutorials - and download the 'Linden body and clothing template'. If you open the upper body template, there are examples of clothing in it. There is a t-shirt example where you see how transparency is used for the arms.

I advice you to look at some of the tutorials on that page, and learn how to use the templates, how to upload and how to actually make the clothing item in world.
