Demonstrates how to take photographs to the next creative level using image compositing techniques in Photoshop.
(upbeat music) - Hi I'm Jan Kabili, welcome to Photoshop CS4: Image Compositing. Of course Photoshop is a great tool for enhancing single photographs one at a time, but sometimes a single photo just isn't enough. Whether for photographic reasons, or for creative reasons. And that's where Photoshop's image compositing features come in to play. In this course I'll start off by walking you through a basic work flow for combining photos.
From moving one file into another, to converting into a smart object, and re-sizing, all the way through to sharpening a final composite layer. I'll teach you a variety of techniques for blending images into a composite that looks seamless. Using layer masks, the auto-blend feature, the hard to find blend-if sliders, and more. If you're already comfortable with Photoshop fundamentals, and you wanna learn how to take your composition skills to the next level, this is the course for you. So let's get started, with Photoshop CS4: Image Compositing.
