Hello Everyone! Today we are creating a double exposure! It’s a neat and simple tutorial for beginners. If you have Photoshop, go ahead and open it up. Let’s get started!
First download these pics:
Open up the bear image (file-open) and quick select the bear
Select Background layer, COMMAND+J, then go down (bottom right of screen) and create a new layer
Move layer 2 BETWEEN layer 1 + Background
Hide Background (unclick the eye), select layer 2, click on the paint bucket, choose a white color, pour on layer 2
Select layer 1 and go to (file-open) and move woods image on top of bear image
Control +T image to cover entire bear and then hit check mark in upper right corner to place woods image
Layer 3 opacity 41% so you can see where you want to place the woods image in your bear
Layer 3 opacity back up to 100%
Right click on layer 3, Create clipping mask, layer 3 change “normal” to “lighten”
Select layer 3, change paint color to black
Using the brush tool in layer 3, brush over the bear’s mouth to darken it a little bit (opacity at 59%, flow at 39%)
Select layer 3, click on the paint bucket and choose the color white.
Still remaining in layer 3, lightly brush over the bear’s head and body to get rid of harsh lines (opacity 100%, flow at 45%)
Select the eyedropper tool, select a color from the top of the woods image on the bear. Go to your paint bucket tool and fill in layers 2 and 3 with that color.
In layer 3, use your brush tool and using the same color as your new background, go in and clean up the edges of the bear so there’s no harsh lines left (opacity 100% flow 45%)
All Done! Great job!
