Combine Two Or More If The Action Doesn’t Unfold
How to use Photoshop to create an illustrative wildlife image, by combining two or more files into a single photo.Step 1: Find two images to composite. It's best if the light is identical, the setting is the same, and the background is plain and simple. Open both in Photoshop.
Step 3: Go to Image>Adjustments>Levels and tweak the midtones slider to get as close a density match as possible. This will help alleviate any variations in exposure from one file to the next.
Step 5: Click the eyeball of the new layer ON and OFF to preview how natural the addition looks. Some clean up cloning may be needed in addition to other tweaks. If so, perform these steps.
