The Globe and Mail’s Jason Smith investigates the challenges and benefits of using Photoshop to combine layers of images.

Jason Smith is an editor at The Globe, and he spent the last two years working as a certified Photoshop expert.
In this column, he explains how to create a blend layer from two or more images and then merge them.
How can you combine images?
Jason’s advice is simple: Use Photoshop.
Combine images: Jason’s tips include: Select multiple layers and merge them, and combine images from multiple Photoshop sessions.
Jason has tested his skills with two layers from the same image: an image of a woman sitting on a couch and another of a young woman with her arms folded.
He tested the first layer with a photo of a girl wearing a dress and then tested the second layer with an image from the man’s bedroom.
In both cases, the merged images are perfectly aligned and the merged layers are nearly identical.
What’s more, he says, when you combine two layers of the same photograph, the blend layer will be identical to the original image.
This means the combined layers are actually more like the original photo than you would expect.
“You can make a very similar result,” he says.
“It just means you’re not using the same Photoshop features.”
Jason says he also has seen people combine multiple layers of an image by creating layers from overlapping layers, but he hasn’t found a good solution.
You might be tempted to combine multiple images by combining them from a single image.
But if you use Photoshop to create blend layers, you’ll probably end up with more layers than you need.
So Jason suggests you do it the other way around.
To merge layers, Jason adds a new layer to each image.
He then adds an adjustment layer to the merged layer to make the image look even more like each layer.
For example, in this photo, Jason has merged two layers: a woman and a boy.
The image has the same width and height as the woman, so it’s a blend.
To blend layers like this, Jason says, you need to make a new adjustment layer, add an adjustment to each layer and then add a new blend layer.
“If you don’t do this, the resulting image will look like the previous layer,” he explains.
“But if you do this then the result will look really different.”
Jason’s Photoshop tips Jason says the best way to combine two images is to use Photoshop’s blend mode, which lets you create a blended image.
“Combine layers” is the key to blending layers, because blending layers is the process of combining layers from two images.
Jason says you can use blend mode to create the appearance of multiple layers when you’re blending images.
He says you’ll often see a new image on the left, and the previous image on on the right.
“So I’ll say, ‘Ok, let’s go over here and make the layer look like two layers,'” Jason says.
In addition to blending a single layer, Jason recommends using the blend mode when you blend two images together.
“This way you can blend the image of one image to the image on top of it, and blend the layer below it,” Jason says to help you blend a new one.
“That way you get that nice, clean image, but the two layers are still going to look the same.”
To do this in Photoshop, Jason explains, you add a layer mask, then add an adjust layer.
Then you add another adjust layer, and you add one more blend layer, to create an even better blend.
In his experience, you should use a mask to blend multiple images.
For this example, Jason had the image from a different camera and a different lighting setup.
Jason used the image he had of the boy from the girl’s bedroom to blend his layer masks and then create a new mask to the boy image.
The mask created a better blend between the two images, and it made the boy’s image appear more like a woman.
“I love using masking,” Jason tells The Globe.
“With masking you can create a mask that does a lot of things, and that can make things like blending easier.
And then you can apply a mask on top or below, and use that to blend the two to create something really nice.”
In other words, the mask creates a mask layer that can blend multiple layers, and then you apply the mask to a new set of layers.
“Masking is also a very useful technique in combination with blend mode,” Jason continues.
“When you apply a blend mode mask to multiple layers you can add an image mask to each of those layers.”
So you can combine layers by combining an image and a mask, and applying the mask layer to create two new layers.
You can also combine layers with masks and
