We'll begin this process by establishing our visual topic, examining some conceptual sketches and discussing some visual parameters that will provide us with a road map to follow as we develop our photo-manipulated image. Along the way we'll spend several lessons in Photoshop weaving together various images to construct our project. From here we'll see how smart objects, smart filters, layer masks, blend modes, and adjustment layers can help us achieve the look and feel we are aiming for on this project. In addition to these helpful tools and features, we'll also spend time painting and applying some textures to refine our photo-manipulated image and make it shine. After watching this training, you'll have the inspiration to create your own photo-manipulation projects whether they're for editorial articles or ad campaigns. Software required: Photoshop CC 14.2.
