After looking through some of the images we* had already created I had the idea of using a reflection style montage as I thought it would work well with these images.
Some of the techniques we will be using include:-
- Layers, duplicating, flipping virtical
- Linking layers
- Layer mask and exploring a quick way to repeat masking
- Gradient tool
- Transform tool
Recorded in Photoshop Elements but easy to follow in all versions of Photoshop.
While the gradient background may work with some images I felt it didn't really work with the pictures we had used. In this second video we look at using one of the images as the background and adding text to the empty space in the bottom of the image.
Some of the techniques we will be using in this video include :-
- Layer - duplicating and unlinking layers
- Adjustment layers
- Type tool
- creating a drop shadow for the text
