Photoshop week 7: It’s cheesy montage time!

This weeks “project”: start with these…

And end up with this…

And all so we could practice selecting complex shapes and cutting them out using the Pen Tool.

I’d had a little play with the Pen Tool in the past, but never really worked out how to control it properly, so it was useful to get some hints on using it effectively. Okay, so I could have read up about it online or in a book, but there is something about someone showing you, and having a couple of hours dedicated to practicing it without distraction, that helps. Definitely learned something new this week.

Even if we only used it to create a cheesy montage.
