In this movie we will be working on the file ben_bassu2.tif.…What I'm going to do here is look at how we can add dimension to our images.…We are going to learn a technique and then apply it to our image.…The file on which we are working on is ben_bassu2.tif.…So go and open that one up, after a couple of times you go to full screen view mode and then let's zoom in.…Well, if we go ahead and turn on this grey layer, one of the things we see, is we have this dimension layer.…If we have a shape that has a specific dimension to it, well, it looks as if,…whats brighter is closer to us and whats darker is further away.…
