Double Exposure Style in Photoshop We've featured quite a few posts and images with the effect most call double exposure. This technique consists of 2 images superimposed. There are some really nice examples with very intricate overlaying, usually with faces of people mixed with photos of nature. I've been thinking about giving it a whirl in Photoshop for a long time and I've finally gotten around to it. So in this tutorial/case study I will show you how to create this double exposure effect using Photoshop and some stock photos. Step 1 Open Photoshop and start a new document. Step 2 Isolate the girl from the background using the select tool. Step 3 Now let's add the second image for the double exposure experiment. Step 4 Duplicate the photo of the branches to make them mor compact. Step 5 Now put both images together. Step 6 Mask the photo of the girl with the branches selection. Step 7 Time for some refinements, especially on the edges and to make them look random and not so uniform. Step 8 Conclusion Applications

TUTO . com : Tuto Photoshop, Flash, After Effects, Indesign Layer tags in Photoshop CS6 One of my favourite uses of Photoshop’s search is for tagging — applying something to layers for easy recall at a later date. There’s two main methods I’ve been using: Changing layer colours and adding tags to layer names. Layer colour This only allows seven possibilities — one for each of Photoshop’s layer colours — but often that’s enough. Layer name Adding tags to the end of layer and group names allows for more heroic finding-stuff-later abilities. Imagine tagging identically styled elements. At this point, I don’t believe it’s possible to use Actions to perform layer filtering — recording an Action and using search doesn’t add anything to the Action, which is a shame. Other search options Another favourite is searching by layer effect — really helpful if you’re hunting for all instances of a particular overlay or drop shadow. A caveat I don’t think layer name tagging would be compatible for those of you who are using layer name based tools for exporting. Happy tagging.
