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.
As always, such helpful tips for speeding up our workflow and solving frustrating issues. Thank you!
Wow this is an amazing video. I always love the “wish I knew” videos because they are filled with such helpful tips.
Interesting class. Would not mind seeing more of this
Thanks Ben. Great lesson and would love to have similar lessons in future as well. Thanks
Thanks, Ben. I think the perspective grid may be useful for compositing photos as well?
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.
Thanks Ben! Can use it.
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!
I think this was a Beneficial Class and it gave me some Idea’s… Thanks!!!!
good lesson. thank you Ben
Loved this lesson Ben. The glass turned out really well and this would be quite a challenge for most of us. Thank you!
Another wonderful and “challenging” lesson. Bravo, Ben!
Thank you very much, young man. I am honored and educated.
