Hi. This tutorial is based on using a layer mask to merge two images. Today, I will make this dinosaur appear on this beach, just into the water. Layer masks are very simple to use, and also very useful! They work on a black – white – gray system. This tutorial will explain further.
Why use a slow shutter speed? This is because slow shutter speed will help blur the image of the water. Thus, a silky-look is created. This impacts the viewers of your image to see the water in the photograph as if in motion.
To correct the flaws, you must go to the history palette. If it you did not find it in your desktop, you can find it normally on the right in Photoshop by default. Go to window > Show history. Once you have located your history palette, select the bold arrow-button on its right side. Click and hold it until a menu appears then go to New Snapshot. When you release your mouse, another dialog box will appear. You must enter in it the name “unsharp eyes”, then click OK.
Designing 3D photographic effects has become easier with Photoshop Extended version. Through clever use of Photoshop’s Data Masking and layers, you can design characters that weave in and out of each other. You can modify the characters’ faces by applying effects such as patterns, gradients and lines. It is better to start by producing each letter separately in a 3D program and then import them into a Photoshop document. Keep each letter in its own layer, and then arrange them around each other, in whatever way looks good to you. If you mask parts of individual letters, you can create letters that appear to be both behind other letters while having parts in front of them at the same time. You can then add other graphic design effects such as lighting and shadows.
In most cases, it works well when you set your shutter speed to a few seconds. However, the numbers of seconds you ought to set your shutter speed to is dependent on the speed of the flow of water you are capturing.
The Most Important Step: Rest your Eyes and Come Back Later Some images will be easy. But this stuff can sometimes drive you crazy. The constant back and forth and staring and tweaking will often pound on your eyes and put you in ‘the fog’. If you feel like this there’s no point in going on. You’ll most likely just hurt your image and any good progress that you’ve made already.
Go outside, look around at colorful things, take a 15 minute nap, go to sleep for the night and come back the next day or days later. You need to see the image from a fresh viewpoint that you can only see with some time away. There have been so many times where I have woken up the next day and looked at a black and white that I had spent so many grueling hours on and was shocked to see that it looked terrible!
