    I did try it in the image that I uploaded to Facebook. And, as always, you are correct. I used the gradient and then painted on the mask to fix it.

    Great Lesson, Ben. I am a photographer and have a large catalog of family files. I have been making birthday, Christmas, and other event cards using images of family members. This technique will be very useful in doing these well-received cards. One point, couldn’t you have used a gradient in the layer mask for the Guatemala image as well as the very, large brush? Another great lesson.

      Yes, I could have used a gradient… but you’ll find it’s much more difficult to get the direction just right compared to painting. Give it a try and you’ll see what I mean.

    Thanks, Ben. I think the perspective grid may be useful for compositing photos as well?

    1. Ben Willmore says: on Text in Perspective

      It sure is. I think I covered in a pervious lesson when I wanted to duplicate an item and reposition it in the image… I used the grid to determine how large or small it should look when moved to various areas.

    Excellent lesson, Ben. Picked up a few tips and ideas that I can use.

    Thank you for the lesson Ben. I am primarily a photographer myself, but I also enjoy the idea of branching out to different aspects of PS so always enjoy seeing these additional lessons. It is Masters Academy after all, not Photographers PS Academy, so I feel there should be the occasional variance. Just my opinion. Thanks for keeping us learning!

    Loved this lesson Ben. The glass turned out really well and this would be quite a challenge for most of us. Thank you!
