Photoshop Again

Same process as yesterday --- these trees are my Background Layer.

This photo of an angel is Layer 1.

This time I changed the Blend Mode to Overlay, AND slid the Opacity slider to 50%. This step makes the angel even less prominent.

Then go to File, New, and change the Background Contents to Transparent. In this new file, choose the Text tool, change your Font and Pt. Size to something you like, and type some text to go with your merged photos. Then use the Move tool to move this text over to your overlaid photos and position it wherever you like it best.

For a collage artist and photographer, this process has unlimited potential!

I love it. Isn't fun to see what you and unhidit can do!

Looks like you are enjoying your photoshop.

Great images! Is there a reason you create a new image to make the text instead of just adding text to the layered photos directly?

Jeanie, I do it both ways. Mostly I wanted to show another possible use for this technique, and you are able to easily change the opacity of the text with this method.

Thank you SO much for showing us and describing this process simply! You've make it look simple, anyway. And I've tried to figure out how to do this for months, but never managed to get the results I hoped for. Maybe now I will!

Thanks again!
