Compositing is our bread and butter, and we want to help you explore everything the craft can do to help you create extraordinary scenes. Learn how to use Photoshop to combine multiple images together into a seamless and surreal image.
Match Light & Color
Use professional Photoshop tools to match hue, lightness, saturation, and lighting so that multiple images blend together seamlessly. We even show you some pro tips and techniques, like Check Layers, that help you check your work so the final image looks as realistic as possible.
Free Stock Photos
Getting into compositing can be overwhelming, especially when you feel like you need to go out and capture every photo yourself. That’s why we show you how to gather images from free stock photo websites, saving you time and helping you to start compositing today!
From Background to Foreground
We show you how to composite a sky from one image behind the mountains of another, adding atmosphere, lighting, and coloring so that they realistically fit the landscape. Then we add our furry subject along with some additional foreground elements so that they blend in perfectly with the lighting and color of the background.
We show you how to add depth to your composites, combining multiple elements like a moon, clouds, fog, sun rays, lens flares, birds, and more to create realistic details and a convincing effect.
