Join Julieanne Kost for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding supporting elements, part of The Art of Photoshop Compositing.
…Let's go ahead and add the table to the image.…Not only is this going to help balance the two subjects, but if the…perspective is correct, it will unify them as well as give the image depth.…So let's return to Bridge, select the table image and double-click on it.…Then we'll use our shortcut in order to view both of our images by tiling them.…We've got the Move tool selected, so I…just need to drag-and-drop the table layer in there.…We'll go ahead and close that and now I need…to resize this and reposition it in the Layers panel.…
So I'll click on layer four and drag it down underneath the wings.…I'll double-click on it to rename it table and then right mouse…click or Ctrl+Click in order to convert it to a smart object.…I'll use Cmd or Ctrl+T in order to resize this.…I'm going to resize it right about to there, maybe around 50%.…I want to make sure that this scale is…about correct, and then I'll tap Return or Enter.…And one thing I should just mention is, this…table is a really good example of just photographing elements.…
