Default Seeing Double: Farm and Limo


Here is a poster that I made for my wife’s real estate business a few years ago. I took full advantage of the use of layers in Photoshop. The background I took with a Nikon 990. A friend took the photo of the car with a 35 mm film camera. I scanned and selected out the background of the car then pasted it on to the farm scene.

Nice work, the image is seamless and the perspective, car vs. background, works.

Nice job

Nothing is real, only the Matrix is real.

This is very nice! So it's a matter of cutting and pasting from one photo to another to make the double exposure in PE2?

A very nicely done ad! Did you insert some of the reflections in the car or were they already there, happily blending with the background style of scenery?

Betsy--you can cut & paste or you can copy & insert or (I don't know if you can do this in PE) you can clone from one photo to another. Probably other ways, too, but I can't think of them.

Not only is this Photoshop's flavor of copy-and-paste, but it's also the method I most often use. My brain obviously isn't up to full speed this morning.

Click-dragging seems the best. Do I click-drag the layer from one photo's palette or make it the active layer and then click-drag it from the photo itself? Or doesn't it matter? I think I tried click-dragging at one point and it didn't work and I figured it just wasn't a feature. Obviously it was operator error!

hmm....i think you have to drag it from the layers palette of the one picture to the other picture itself.....that's how i've always done it...

No palette necessary. If you have two pictures open, just click and drag one of the pictures over onto the other one. If it's only a portion of one of the pictures you want on the other one, select that portion first. Of course, all this assumes you've first selected the move tool. I tend to forget to select it and end up blowing up my photo to a thousand percent because I happen to be currently using the magnify tool.
