Exercise your creativity by combining images to make something new.
- Hi there, I'm Tim Grey. Composite images can be great fun to create, but they can also be incredibly useful for a variety of purposes. There are, of course, a great many skills and techniques you'll want to master in order to produce the best composite images. And that's exactly what this video training course is aimed at. I'll start off by guiding you through some of the concepts of composite imaging, as well as some of the relatively automated methods of creating a composite. We'll then take a look at a wide variety of techniques for creating composite images, mostly revolving around the use of layer masks.
The layer mask is a remarkably powerful feature that is at the heart of compositing and Photoshop. We'll see how to create composites based upon a gradient, by painting on a mask, by using a selection as the basis of a mask, and much more. Of course, if you're going to create a composite image, you want to be sure it's done with the best quality possible, so we'll also spend some time looking at the various ways you can clean up and improve the overall quality of your layer masks. Finally, we'll explore a variety of techniques for applying adjustments to specific elements of a composite, adding creative effects, and employing layer groups, all aimed at helping you improve the sophistication of your composites.
Throughout this course, you'll learn many valuable skills, that will help you consistently produce composite images of the highest quality. And along the way, you'll have lots of fun as well. Let's get started.
