Combining two photos to create a new look is a fun way to learn various techniques. We’ll learn how to use the Circular Marquee tool from the center, adjusting the opacity of a layer, creating a path from a selection and adding text along it in the process. Let’s get started.
Combining Two Photos for New EffectReviewed by Chad Neuman on Jan 24Rating:
Now let’s add a text on a path to the photo. Command-click (PC: Control-click) the thumbnail preview of the Layer 1 on the Layers palette. This will create a circular selection around the pixels in the earth layer.
Click the Paths palette tab and click the Make Work Path from Selection icon on the bottom of the Paths palette.
With the Text tool, click on the left top side of the path we just made.
Type in some text that matches the photo.
With the Move tool, click-and-drag a corner of the text area and expand it so there’s some room between the earth and the text. Now we have a combined photo with some text.
