Join Seán Duggan for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files, part of Create a Portrait Collage in Photoshop.
- [Voiceover] If you have access to the exercise files for this course, you can download them to your computer desktop as I've done here. You'll see that I have organized all of the images that we'll be working on in this course into different folders based on the different chapters. If you're viewing this course on a mobile device, a set-top device, or your membership doesn't provide access to the exercise files, that's okay. You can still follow along by watching how I use the files, or you can also use your own portrait images.
In this course, photographer, author, and educator Seán Duggan steps you through the process of using Photoshop to combine a set of portraits into a collage. He uses the compositing features of Photoshop, including layers, selections, masks, and Smart Objects, in combination with the transform and tonal styling tools for maximum creative impact. These techniques will help you build a new portrait collage from scratch and discover some new tricks in Photoshop along the way.
- Choosing images
- Arranging layers
