Digital Layering and Blending

Wen Redmond C&T Publishing ePub

There are countless ways to digitally layer and blend photographs. Try it out by selecting several photos and layering them using your photo-editing program. Each texture, color, image, or background that you layer will influence the others in unique and different ways. Read on for ways to play and experiment with digital layering.

LAYERING

Layering images is easily done in image-editing software and apps (see Editing Images). Each software program or app works slightly differently, but the general process is the same. Choose two images you want to place on top of each other, then copy and paste one image on the other. Remember to save your originals first!

Layering Example 1
