Con­vert to mono 1

To add to the fine art ap­peal of your shots, ap­ply a mono con­ver­sion in Pho­to­shop by hit­ting Ctrl+Shift+U. This adds a graphic ele­ment that will help to tie the three im­ages to­gether. This step isn’t com­pul­sory, and many trip­ty­chs work re­ally well in colour, es­pe­cially if there’s one strong tone that runs across all of the im­ages. Make your first crop 2 It would be an odd selfie if the shot didn’t in­clude a face, so our first crop is of the head. Grab the Crop Tool from the Tool­box and draw a crop over the part you want to go ahead with. Po­si­tion the nose us­ing the rule-of-thirds and hit re­turn to ap­ply the crop. Now go to File>Save As and save your im­age un­der a new file­name.

Con­tinue crop­ping 3

Open up the orig­i­nal pic­ture and grab the Crop Tool. Next drag the crop box over a de­tail in your im­age and hit Re­turn to ap­ply it. Go to File>Save As again to save un­der a new file­name. When all of your crops are made you can load them into a triptych pre­sen­ta­tion frame as we have above. See p43 for how to place your im­ages into a triptych grid.
