US­ING PHO­TO­SHOP

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE -

For those who have cam­eras that don’t of­fer mul­ti­ple ex­po­sure mode, you can al­ways turn to Adobe Pho­to­shop to blend sev­eral pic­tures to­gether. The fol­low­ing method is used to il­lus­trate how this is pos­si­ble.

STEP 1

Se­lect two (or more) pho­tos that you want to blend and open them in Pho­to­shop.

STEP 2

Se­lect a base photo, then copy and paste the other photo into that base photo. This is achieved by se­lect­ing the en­tire can­vas of the sec­ond photo (Ctrl+A or Com­mand+A), copy­ing it (Ctrl+C or Com­mand+C), and past­ing it (Ctrl+V or Com­mand+V) onto the base photo. The sec­ond photo will now be­come a new layer in the base photo. If done cor­rectly, the sec­ond photo should ap­pear as a new layer in the base photo.

STEP 3

Add a vec­tor mask to the top layer and use the move tool to po­si­tion the top photo to a place you like.

Add a vec­tor mask to the top layer.

STEP 4

Se­lect the foreground by press­ing the ‘X’ key.

STEP 5

Se­lect brush, then set the di­am­e­ter to about 800 pix­els and opac­ity to 20 per­cent. Just brush around the photo till you see the base photo and re­peat un­til you get the de­sired ef­fect. That’s it, you’re done!

The fi­nal prod­uct will look some­thing like this.
