Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Final adjustments and overall project review, part of Portrait Project: Changing a Background for Dramatic Effect.
…In this movie we will finish off our project, and we'll…do so by first organizing a few layers together into a group.…Next we'll revisit how we can change the crop or the composition of the image.…And last but not least, we'll open up our image in full screen mode and bring…back the layers, so we can click through…the layers in order to review our progress.…All right.…Well, let's begin with organizing a few layers.…Go ahead and click into the top layer of…the set which you want to group or organize together.…
