Put it all to­gether

To edit our fi­nal image to­gether, we first boosted the con­trast and cor­rected the white bal­ance in each of the raw files, and turned them in a por­trait ori­en­ta­tion. Next we cre­ated a new doc­u­ment that was 300mm wide and 222mm high. As we had seven fruits, we needed to di­vide the image into seven parts, so each strip mea­sured 43 x 222mm. Next we went to the Rec­tan­gle tool and clicked on the image. You can then key in the amounts to the width (43mm) and height (222mm). Once you’ve cre­ated one rec­tan­gle, you can po­si­tion it on the left-hand side of the frame. To du­pli­cate the rec­tan­gle, sim­ply hold down Alt and drag the rec­tan­gle un­til the du­pli­cate is po­si­tioned over the next fruit. Re­peat this five more times.

You can then im­port your fruit images. Place the first straw­berry image above the rec­tan­gle 1 layer in the Lay­ers panel, right-click and se­lect Cre­ate Clip­ping Mask. Your straw­berry image will then take the shape of the rec­tan­gle. You can trans­form the size and move it around un­til it’s placed ac­cord­ingly. Re­peat for the rest, and you’ll have a fruit rain­bow!
