The ability to blend multiple photos in Photoshop is one of the most powerful tools a photographer has available (and is literally essential for digital artists.) This process, known as compositing, is achieved by understanding Layer Masks.

While Photoshop can be a very intimidating tool to get started with, this text and video guide aim to ease you in slowly, taking you step by step through every action with the HOW and the WHY.

By the end of this video, you will understand how Layer Masks work and be able to start learning the endless applications of this feature.

Before getting started, be sure to download the free practice photos at the very top so you can follow along with me!

Remember, pauses and rewinds are FREE. If you missed something, just jump back and watch again. There is no reason to rush your comprehension.
