Discover the power of Photoshop blend modes
LEARN HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THIS SIMPLE YET VERSATILE FEATURE AND SEE HOW YOU CAN BLEND TWO OR MORE OF YOUR PHOTOS FOR INCREDIBLE RESULTS
01 COPY AND BLEND
Open the double_exposure01 and 02 start files. Grab the Move tool and drag the 02 image up to the tab of the other image and then down inside the image window to copy the layer over, then go to the Layers panel (‘Window > Layers’). Click the Blend mode dropdown at the top and change it from Normal to Screen.
02 FINE-TUNE POSITIONING
Double-click the lower layer to make it editable. Use the Move tool to alter the positions until both layers are aligned in the way you want. Press ‘Ctrl/Command-T’ if you need to resize or rotate, and use the Crop tool to remove messy edges. Finally, make any tonal adjustments you like — here, we’ve desaturated and added blue.
