I thought I’d start the week off by posting a recent Photoshop tutorial that I put together for TipSquirrel.com last week where I go through a technique for combining images to create ‘composites’.
With the enhanced Refine Edge function in the latest release of Adobe Photoshop CS5, making selections has never been easier. However making a selection is one thing but dropping that selection into another image and making it look realistic is another. This is where blend modes can come into play as you’ll see in the following video where I take an image that I shot in a studio against a white backdrop and swap that backdrop for one ‘more fitting’ to the look and feel I was after but still managing to include fine details such as hair; and what’s more, it’s all done extremely quickly.
It’s always great to ‘hear’ your thoughts / comments so as always please feel free to use the comments section below.
