How To Blend Images Together and Create Realistic Composites In Photoshop

In this video, I’m going to show you how to
blend images together and create realistic composites in Photoshop. Hi! Welcome back to the Photoshop Training Channel. I’m Jesus Ramirez. In this video, I’m going to show you how to
create realistic composites in Photoshop using three techniques to match luminosity, saturation,
and color. The goal of this tutorial is for you to learn
how to put two images together that were shot at different times, and make it seem like
one cohesive composite. Okay, let’s get started. We’re going to work with this document. It contains two layers – this background layer,
and this foreground. Of course, we want to make it seem as if she
was really standing in this scene. To do so, we’re going to use three adjustment
layers to match luminosity, saturation, and color. In this tutorial, we really don’t have to
worry about perspective, but in your composite, you may have to worry about it. If you don’t know what I mean by perspective,
I have a tutorial that covers everything you want to know about perspective. I’ll post a link to it right below on the
description, but I must say that it’s really important for you to get the perspective right. But as I said in this case, we really don’t
have to worry about that. We’re going to start by selecting the portrait
layer. We’re going to make a selection so that we
can mask her out. You can simply use the Quick Selection tool
and click and drag over her body. If you’re in Photoshop CC 2018, the Quick
Selection tool will also give you access to the ‘Select Subject’ button; you can click
on that. In this case, I already have a selection active,
so Photoshop is going to ask me if I want to disregard my current selection. I want to do that and press okay. Then, Adobe Sensei, Adobe’s artificial intelligence
that is found inside of Photoshop, will analyze the image, and select the main subject. In this case, it does a really good job. The only issue is here in this area, I’m going
to hold Alt, Option on the Mac, and click and drag to subtract from the selection. We have a really good selection here, so all
I really need to do now is click on the new layer mask icon to mask the background from
the foreground. We can of course fine tune the mask, but in
this tutorial, I’m not going to do that. I want to spend most of the time on the actual
compositing. If you want to learn more about masking, especially
on masking long flowy hair over busy backgrounds, then I have the perfect tutorial for you. It’s called Advanced Hair Masking in Photoshop. I’ll post the link right below on the description. Anyway, in this tutorial, we’re okay with
this mask. For this composite to look realistic, we need
to match luminosity, saturation, and color. We’re going to start with luminosity. The first step is to create a black and white
adjustment layer, which of course desaturates the image, so we’re only looking at the Luminance
value. This is going to be a luminosity check layers,
so I’m going to call it just that. Luminosity check. I’m going to delete the layer mask, just so
that it stands out. To make it stand out even more, I’m going
to change the layer to label to red, that way we have this red label here. It really doesn’t do anything. It just allows you to see that layer more
easier in the layer stack. Now that this adjustment layer is showing
us the image without any color, we can see that the background is brighter than the foreground,
so what we need to do is match those. In some cases, it may not be easy to see what
the darkest and brightest colors of the image are. We need to know so that we can match those
to the foreground. To find out what they are, we can create a
Levels Adjustment Layer. Hold Alt, Option on the Mac, and click and
drag on the black point; the image will turn white. As soon as you start dragging to the right,
you’re going to start seeing some shades of gray. The first areas that turn black will be the
darkest parts of this image, so the shadows that you see here. If I do the same on the white point, click
and drag to the left, the image will turn black. Whatever areas turn white first will be the
brightest parts of the image, so these buildings here. I’m going to delete this adjustment layer
because we don’t need it anymore. We now know that the brightest colors are
here, and that the darkest colors are down here. If I enable my portrait layer, I can do the
same thing. I can create a Levels Adjustment Layer. But in this case, I’ll use curves. You can use curves or levels for this, it
really doesn’t matter. Whatever you feel more comfortable with. I prefer the Curves Adjustment Layer. Then I’m going to clip it to the layer below,
so that this adjustment layer only affects the model layer. I’m going to hold Alt, Option on the Mac,
and click and drag this black point to the right. The areas that turn black first are the darkest
areas. In this case, the shadows here. If I click and drag this point while holding
Alt, you’ll see that the first areas that turn white are the highlights on the jacket,
her hand, and her nose. I’m going to reset the layer by clicking on
this icon. I want you to notice one thing. If I select the Eyedropper tool, and select
the darkest point of the background; in this case, it’s not working because I have the
focus, the white outline on the layer mask. The layer is white. Make sure that you actually have either a
pixel layer, or in this case, the adjustment layer thumbnail selected, and then click on
the darkest part of the image, or the background. You’ll see that that black is not really black. It’s 12%;
0% is black. The darkest point of my background
is a brightness of about 12%. I can do the same thing, and select the color
from the shadows here under her hoodie. You’ll see that the darkest points
are almost black, 1%. So, that means that I need to make this black
point brighter so that it matches the background. If I select that color now, you’ll notice
that it’s 8%, so a little closer, and we can even go brighter. So, about this point will be good enough. We can do the same thing for the whites. It’s not really white. It’s an off-white. I’m looking at the white here to match this
area here, so that’s very similar. The black and white image looks much better. One thing that I will do is create a point
here and drag it down. Another point here and drag it up,
just to increase the contrast. I’m not really making the darkers any darker;
I’m just creating more contrast in that image. That’s before and after. When the black and white version
of your composite looks good, then the colored version will look good as well. One thing that you need to do is select your
Curves Adjustment Layer, and rename it So, that you can recall what it’s controlling. Also, change the Blending Mode to Luminosity. If I change the Blending Mode to Luminosity,
you’re going to see a very subtle change, but there is a change. And Actually, to make it more obvious to you why I’m doing that, I’m going to create
another Curves Adjustment Layer, and I’m going to create an extreme
adjustment. I’ll also clip it to the portrait layer. I’ll zoom in, notice how we made an extreme
adjustment, but it really show us how we increase the saturation of the image. Once I change the blending mode to luminosity, you’ll see that we don’t actually adjust the saturation. The Blending Mode set to Normal, curves will
also adjust saturation, and I don’t want that. I only want to control the luminosity, which is why I changed the Blending Mode
to Luminosity on this layer. Thus, the change was much more subtle of course,
but I still didn’t want any saturation adjustments. So, I’m going to fit the image to screen,
and we’re going to move on to the next part, which is controlling the saturation, or matching
the saturation rather of the two elements. To do so, we’re going to use something called
a saturation map. I’m going to create a
Selective Color Adjustment Layer. Make sure that Absolute is selected. Then going to the reds, and bring the black
all the way down to -100%, and do the same for all the colors. Then, when you finish adjusting the blacks
to -100% on the colors, and the whites, neutrals, and blacks, change the black to +100%. You’re going to get a black and white image. This black and white image show you how much
saturation there is. It’s doing so by making the saturated areas
bright, and the desaturated areas dark. If I create a hue/saturation adjustment layer,
and increase the saturation, you’ll see that the image will get brighter because there
is more saturation of course. If I bring the saturation down to a -100,
the image turns black because there is no saturation. This saturation map will allow you to see
the saturation differences between your background and foreground color, and then you can match
those. We’re simply going to do that by using this
hue/saturation adjustment layer, clipping it to the layer below. I’ll call it saturation, because that’s what
that adjustment layer is controlling. Of course, I’ll change the blending mode to Saturation,
so that that’s the only thing that it controls. Then I can increase the saturation of my model
layer because I want the brightness to be similar to the background. However, notice that in this case, when I
increase the saturation so that the jacket matches the rest of the image, the skin tones
get too bright, which means that they’re highly saturated. Something that you can do is
click on this icon here. Click on the skin tones. Notice how it automatically selects reds. No matter the ethnicity, skin tones are mostly
found in the reds. And then you can click and drag to the left
to reduce the saturation. If I enable my saturation map again, you can
see that the image looks better, and I can continue adjusting the saturation of the skin
tones, and then I can also adjust the jacket independently. If I click on the jacket, notice how it now
selects the blues, and I can enable my saturation map again, and increase the saturation so that
the jacket, the face, and the background have similar levels of saturation. This is before and after. I still think that maybe the face might be
a little too highly saturated, so I’m going to go back into the reds, and
reduce the saturation even more. Before and after. You can also adjust the yellows because there
are some yellows in the skin tones as well, so reduce those a little bit. I think this looks much, much better. I’ll also delete the layer mask from my saturation
map. I’ll call it saturation map, and change the
label to red, so that we can see it better in the layer stack. So, Saturation map, and luminosity, check. What we’re going to do now is
match the colors of the image, so that they look like they’re
in the same scene. To do so, I’m going to show you a cool trick
with a Solid Fill Adjustment Layer. I’m going to create a solid color fill layer. It really doesn’t matter what shade of gray
you use, as long as it’s gray, meaning zero hue, and zero saturation; 60% is fine, and
press okay. I’m going to put that right here above the
saturation layer, and I’ll call this one color check. And I’ll delete the layer mask;
change the label to red. And I’ll change the Blending Mode to Luminosity. What this does is that it evens out the luminosity
of all the pixels, and it makes the colors easy to see. You could also create a hue/saturation adjustment
layer, increase the saturation, and it makes it more obvious. So, what I’ll do is I’ll select that layer, hold
shift, click on the color check, and press control G, command G on the Mac. I’ll also call this group color check. I will change the label to red as well. There you go. We have our color check layer. What we want to do now is match the colors
that are found in the background to the colors that are found in the foreground. Notice there’s a lot of blues in the shadows
and the highlights, and no blues in the background. We want to add the colors that are found here,
these oranges and reds and pinks onto her jacket, and her body so that the image matches. To do so, I’m going to click on the saturation
layer, create a Selective Color Adjustment Layer, clip it to the layer below, change
the name to color, and also change the blending mode to color, because that’s what we’re controlling. As I said before, we’re going to use this
adjustment layer to match the colors of the background to the colors of the foreground. Essentially, we’re changing the ambient color
so that it matches, and it looks more realistic. We’re going to start out by changing the blacks,
so select blacks on the dropdown. This is going to control the shadows of course. If you look at the background, you’ll notice
that in all the shadows, there is oranges, magentas, and even reds; but no blues like
we have here in the foreground. We can adjust the cyan, magenta and yellow. These colors have opposite colors. The opposite of cyan is red. The opposite of magenta is green. And the opposite of yellow is blue. If you don’t remember that, you can create
a Color Balance Adjustment Layer. As you can see, the relationship between those
colors is better represented in the labels in this layer. I’m not sure why Adobe didn’t use
the same labeling color system for the Selective Color Adjustment Layer, but you can use the Color
Balance Adjustment layer as a reminder. Anyway, I’m going to delete this layer, and work with the
Selective Color Adjustment Layer that we labeled color. With black selected,
I’m going to reduce the
cyan to get red. Notice how now we have a lot of red in these
shadows, and these colors are more similar to the colors of the background. Then I’m going to increase the magenta, and
increase the yellow just a little bit. If I disable the color check adjustment layer,
you can see the before, and the after. Also, I want to point out that if you can’t
really see the colors in here, you can always come back into the solid fill adjustment layer,
and just make it brighter or darker. Maybe that will improve how the colors are
shown. Anyway, we are now going to collapse this
group, go back into the color adjustment layer, and we’re going to work with the neutrals,
and we’ll do the same thing. We’ll reduce the cyan, increase the magenta
and increase the yellow. Finally, we’ll work with the whites. Those are the highlights. You can see that the highlights right here
on the arm, they have a lot of blue. If I disable this group, you can see that
there. What we want to do is reduce the cyan, increase
the magenta, and also increase the yellow. At this point, we have done a really good
job in matching those colors. You can see that before and the after. What I’m going to do now is work with the
colors that are found in the image, so I don’t really need my color check layer because I
already matched the main colors, which is the important part. Now I’m going to work on the finer details. The finer details include obviously her jacket. Her jacket is blue. I can go into the blues, and reduce the cyan,
and increase the yellows. Notice how by making that simple adjustment,
the image matches much better. I could also go into the cyans, and do the
same thing. Reduce the cyans, and increase the magentas. Before and after. If you affect the skin tones, you can always
go into the reds. No matter the ethnicity, the skin tones are
found in the reds for the most part. I can increase the cyan. The reason I’m increasing the cyan is because
we were reducing it and all the other colors that we use, so I’m off-balancing that adjustment
by increasing it. The reason I’m doing that is because I want
to keep skin tones that are fairly natural. You could also go into the yellows, and add
a little bit of cyan because there is a little of yellow in the skin as well. We’ll increase that just a tiny bit. That’s before and after. What I’m going to do now is work on some details;
not all of them because a lot of the details are particular to this image. I want to show you a couple of tricks that
you can do, and hopefully it helps you on your image. What I’m going to do is work with the highlights. Notice how we have a highlight here on the
left. It’s a yellow highlight that’s hitting the
buildings, and maybe I want some of that highlight to hit her jacket. If I want to add yellow to these highlights, I can go into the whites, and increase the yellows. See how I just added just a little bit of
yellow here. I think that helps the image look a little
more realistic. Look for things like that on your image. It helps the realism. Also, you can always go back, and fine tune
the saturation, and the luminosity if need be, just to make it look a little more realistic. In this case, I think we did a really good
job, so I’m not going to adjust it too much. This is the original image, and this is after
we applied those three adjustment layers to make it look more realistic. Now that you’ve adjusted the luminosity, saturation,
and color, I want to show you what you can do to finalize the composite, and make it
all come together even more. I’m going to select the color adjustment layer,
then hold shift, and click on the background. Then I’m going to right-click and select convert
to smart object. Then I’m going to go into filter, camera raw
filter. We’re going to use this filter to enhance
a composite. I’m going to increase the clarity, which is
adding contrast to the midtones. Then I’m going to increase the shadows just a tiny bit, and make the highlights a little bit darker. I’m going to go into the detail panel, and
increase the sharpening of the image. I’m going to go into the effects tab, and
add a little bit of grain. I’m going to zoom in so you can see what happens. I’m going to zoom in, and I’m just going to
add grain that is going to make everything seem a little more cohesive with this digital
noise. I’m going to right-click, and select fit and
view, and add just a little bit of vignetting to the image, like so, and press okay. That’s before and after. It just makes the image come together a little
bit better. Let me know in the comments below which of
these three techniques, or four rather, were new to you, and which ones you’re planning
to use on your future composites. Also, if you decided to make a composite with

    This is the best way to learn photo editing.

  8. Petar Vockic July 10, 2018 at 9:13 pm

    great tutorial, i doesnt know any of this tricks, thank you

  9. David Torres July 10, 2018 at 9:20 pm

    I really like your videos, sometimes you go to fast for me but i'm trying to keep up. On this tutorial you started with one picture on one layer and the background on another layer. My question is how did you start out with those two layers? thanks.

  10. Fırat Turk July 11, 2018 at 1:50 pm

    Hugely helpful tutorial. Many thanks. The only input I may have would be about the necessity to blur any sharp edges (her outlines in this instance). In real life it is very difficult to find a perfectly sharp edge (2D objects such as paper or razor don't count). All edges of all 3D objects are beveled to some degree so that's what the human eye looks to see especially when perspective (foreground and background) is involved. Using the Blur Tool on any edges creates a nice anti-aliasing effect which makes the scene much more realistic. Light refracts and scatters while passing near an edge and blurring gives the same effect. Your eye unconsciously looks for that effect unless you are a hawk or something…

  11. Parth Gajjar July 13, 2018 at 9:50 am

    It's good to learn with you, but please provide practice file's, so we we first work on that, that's good for us.

  49. hotlilrel October 17, 2018 at 3:36 am

    What if you need to add multiple things to your image? I guess each piece would need to be tweaked as you did the girl. But would you do the convert to smart object step before adding other pieces? 🤔

  68. Anders Glantz March 6, 2019 at 11:53 am

    Great tutorial! Totally new to me since i have done the most in just LR. Really did like it 🙂

  69. Edgar Esquivel March 14, 2019 at 1:11 am

    YOU. ARE. REALLY. FUCKING. GOOD. Thank you!!!

    This was great, but very overwhelming. This is over my head. I can follow what you are doing, but if I practiced this myself on my photos I wouldn't know if what I was doing is correct. I need more practice to understand this kind of advanced editing.

    SO great tutorial!!!1 and so usable! thank you!

    How does the Selective Color's Saturation Mask actually work?

    It removes the color but what is the Selective Color actually doing for having only the saturation left? How is that possible?

    I've been using for a while now but I'd like to actually understand what's going on.

  79. CHELOS stgo April 25, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    Wow will have to see it a couple of times to digest all that information…

  80. Troy Durrance April 27, 2019 at 1:32 pm

    You do an amazing job at showing and explaining everything you do. However, this is beyond my level of comprehension, even after years of using Photoshop. I can see I'm not the only one!!! 🙂 Great tutorial!

  81. Richard Sineyhan May 6, 2019 at 4:18 am

    AWESOME!!! Thanks

    An Action for setting up the three check layers would be really helpful.

  83. Diego Mendez Messias May 28, 2019 at 3:51 pm

    Gradient Mapping seems a lot easier than this technique

  86. John Elkins July 8, 2019 at 5:00 am

    It seems everybody does tutorials of professionally taken photos. What about cellphone photos or DSLR with a kit lens type photos? I'd like to see how some of these Photoshop dudes doing tutorials use "regular" photos… Would it be the same? Cuz when I try to do these tutorials on those type images they always come out way different looking… Why?

  87. Simon Shaw July 12, 2019 at 7:32 pm

    I still don’t understand what you’re talking about. This is why people don’t use PhotoShop. Too much research & practice is needed to use it well

  88. Willie von Busche July 15, 2019 at 2:10 pm

    A very impressive video. Excellent. But I'm miles away from being able to practice what you are teaching here. I don't know which version you are using but it's way too expensive to buy. And that is a pity. Shame on you Adobe.-:)

  89. Yapip August 9, 2019 at 7:18 am

    damn finally. Thank you good Sir!

  90. Hadouken Gr August 12, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    what do you do when you want to match the saturation but the clothing is red? trying to make the clothing match the background changes the saturation of the skin, trying to repair the skin undoes the fix on the clothing

  91. Arikowid August 22, 2019 at 7:37 am

    thank you for ur free tutorial, very helping to me who is student and doesnt have enough money to get an paid course

  92. Jacky Dahlhaus August 23, 2019 at 1:49 pm

    I had never used the Camera Raw feature, but will certainly use it in the future to match the grain of my image and the background 🙂

  93. Alcibiades Fleires August 24, 2019 at 6:39 am

    Great video

  94. Cheyenne Henderson September 10, 2019 at 7:36 pm

    Though this is a great tutorial, it would be extremely helpful if you linked the photos you used for your subscribers to follow along. Thanks!

  95. Ryuu Mei September 17, 2019 at 1:07 am

    Where is the sample for download, i want that background 🙁

  96. lJ Draws September 27, 2019 at 11:47 am

    Thank you!

  98. Melody Reed September 28, 2019 at 4:11 pm

    why don't you ever provide the images for download? it would be so helpful. Otherwis I love and follow your tutorials.

  99. bowtiecigars October 1, 2019 at 12:14 am

    You're a good teacher! This was my first video, but your explanation makes plenty of sense to me! I look forward to trying this method on my images. Thx! Bowtie
