How’d They Do That? No. 12: The Perfect Blend

How’d They Do That? No. 12: The Perfect Blend
Click to enlarge

This mini lesson focuses on using blending modes and opacities to create combine a photo, patterned paper, and brushes into a single, seamless image.

You will learn how to:

  • blend layers
  • create an adjustment layer
  • resize photos proportionally
  • load brushes
  • pull colors from a photo for use with brushes
This lesson includes:
A 9-page, full-color pdf with screen shots (in PS CS3) and step-by-step instructions for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements users
One papers, one grungy cluster brush, and the letters h-o-p-e from the “Counting Trash” alpha brush set (.png and .abr formats), all designed by Katie Pertiet

You will need:
Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements
Adobe Acrobat
One photograph

While I do provide every step necessary to complete the techniques, it is helpful to have some experience with opening and closing files and a basic knowledge of the Photoshop or Photoshop Elements workspace.

Another very helpful and productive tutorial! I need some encouragement to explore some of photoshop's tools and this led me competently through the blending modes. This lesson is easy to follow, steps are clear and the results left me ready to explore the other modes besides the ones used here. What I have also really liked in all these lessons are the extra tips (such as keystroke shortcuts) that I am picking up. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and skill through these lessons.
