Join Julieanne Kost for an in-depth discussion in this video Assembling the pieces, part of The Art of Photoshop Compositing.
…Let's begin this composite by assembling all of the elements into one document.…This time, we're going to take advantage of a…little known shortcut to make it easier on ourselves.…But first, we need to make a new file.…I'll use Cmd+N or Ctrl+N on Windows and create a file using my preset.…If you don't have a preset, enter 6 for width…and height, the resolution 300, 8 bit and Adobe RGB.…Then, I'm going to return to Bridge and…I'm going to select three images.…But I need to drag and drop these images…on top of the canvas that we opened in Photoshop.…
So, I'll make my window a little bit smaller, so that I can see the canvas.…And then, click and drag and drop it on top.…Because of our preferences, Photoshop is going to automatically…resize the images if they're larger than the current canvas.…And it's going to place them as large as it can without…distorting them.…Then all we need to do is either tap the Return or…Enter key or click on this check in order to place the image.…It'll place them one at a time. So again, I'll tap Enter or Return.…
