Tutorials Photo Manipulation 19145 Views September 14th, 2010

Hello, In this tutorial I want to show you a photo manipulation with the theme "Industrial Nightmare" - Apocalyptic Image! I will use 5 different photos that will need color adjustments to blend perfect one with another. This tutorial can be seen as a blending and photo manipulation exercise.

Part 2

create a new layer and add a little white point with the Brush Tool; change the opacity of this layer to 60%

You can see in the image below the exact area for the above layers.

with the Pen Tool , this time select Path , draw a simple line like in the image; now select the Brush Tool and make sure that the size is 2 and opacity 100%; set the foreground color to #4b3621 , than create a new layer. And in this new layer right click and choose Stroke Path… Now press delete 2 times until the vector shape is deleted. Change the opacity of this layer to 55 %.

The result is a little brown line on the bottom area of the eye.

Reapeat the step above, the only difference is that the foreground color is WHITE and the opacity 83%. Move this white line up like in the image below:

Create a nice contour for the eyebrows; draw with the Pen Tool a shape like in the image; make sure that the Paths option is selected as in the steps above. The foreground color is #4b3621 and the brush size is 3. Go to Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur , radius 1.

Step 7 – Add the Background Image

Now comes the hard part adding the background and blending all together ; I am not an expert. I am just learning exercising.

The background photo is this industrial city landscape.

Copy the image into your psd file and select the bottom are with the houses and delete it. Move the image down. Change the opacity of this layer to 40%.

Duplicate the Background Layer. Go to the Blending Mode of this new layer and change it to Luminosity 100%. You should now have something like this:

Step 8 – Create a Place for Every Item

As you can see the girl’s face is to high and we have a white empty space at the top of the poster. So I will create a new layer to show you where to place the items(photo elements). As you can see our poster has a shape now…the only thisng that we have to do is to blend all together.

Step 9 – Blend the Girl with the Background

I have forgot to tell you to select all the layers of the Girl and put them into a new gropu called Girl Group. So do it now! Now duplicate this group and call it Girl Group Copy. The reason I do that is to have an untouched copy of the girl layers if something goes wrong. Hide the Girl Group Copy.

Right click on the Girl Group and choose Merge Group. The result is an image with all the girl layers merged. Call the new layer Girl Layer.

Go to Edit – Transform – Scale 80%

The first stept in the blending process is to lower the opacity of Girl Layer to 65%

This is the part where we can easily make mistakes  . Fortunately we have a copy. So take the Eraser Tool. Make sure that you have Soft Brush Selected. Than with different sizes and opacities delete parts of the Girl like in the picture.

The idea is to create the impresion that the girl is behind the smoke and that a part is inhaled.

Step 10 – Blend the Gas Mask Man with the Background

Bring the Man with the Gas Mask into the scene. Resize the image to 60% and place it like in the image. Change the opacity to 50% and start blending with the same Eraser Tool.

So take the Eraser Tool. Make sure that you have Soft Brush Selected. Than with different sizes and opacities delete the white background of the man like in the picture.

Create a new rectangle , color #8f7d67 that covers all the other images. Change the Blending Mode of this layer to Overlay 100%. Call this layer Filter. The image should look like this:
