Good morning Photoshop Elements and More members! It's Saturday and time for a new Creative Effects Challenge!
It isn't exactly spring here, but it sure isn't winter either! The sun is waking me up earlier now, and night has lost its hold. Creative juices are thawing!
I have found several tutorials using a mask and the gradient tool to blend images together, but this short video tut (4.5 minutes) from Creative Cloth is special in that it succinctly offers some additional ideas to make your creation quite special: How to Blend Photos in Photoshop Elements
I didn't do everything she said; there are many decision-points that you can take or leave, but because it is so short you can experiment and quickly find what works for you and your image choices.
I am so looking forward to your creations; you are an artist!
