Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video The final composite, part of Creating Dreamscapes in Photoshop: 1.
In this, the final movie of the chapter, we are going to put this beautiful little cliff…in an actual setting.…So I have another image open here, which I call background, and that's going to be where…we are going to put our cliff.…Our cliff is going to be coming up right into this area here.…So, I am going to come over here and what I am going to do is I have all of my different…layers, there is the original background, which just basically kind of look kind of…funny now like a little Lilliputian kind of a town there maybe.…But we have all of these layers.…So what I am going to do is I am going to select my top layer here, and I am going to…just say Merge Visible.…
Now I am going to hold down my Option key when I do this and before I do that let's…just do it just by saying Merge Visible.…See what happened, they all got merged into a single layer.…I am going to undo that, and this time I am going to hold down my Option key and Merge Visible.…Now you see what happened, it created a new layer that merged all the layers below into a single layer.…
