Create a magazine cover look with the masthead sandwiched between two layers of image in this video.
- [Instructor] So here is a simple technique.…You see it all the time on magazine covers…where you have the model's head…overlapping the magazine masthead.…Here's my starting stake with the type on top of the image.…All I need to do is make a selection…of this portion of the image…and then copy that selection above the type.…I already have an alpha channel…with that selection saved,…so I'll come to my channels panel.…Command + click on the thumbnail of the alpha channel,…return to my layers panel…make sure that I'm on the background layer…and then copy this selection to a new layer.…
Command or Control + J.…And then just need to drag that up above the type.…Simple as that.…
