hi this is Marty from Blue Lightning TV
I'm going to show you how to create a
double exposure image from two photos if
you'd like to use this image I provided
its link in my video's description or
project files for the second photo
you'll get the best results if the
person you choose has deep shadows on
one side like these examples that I got
from shutterstock.com it doesn't matter
if the color or black and white however
if your photo has general lighting like
this one I'll show you how to transition
it into deep shadows if you'd like to
use this photo I provided its link the
first step is to create a selection
around your subject for this example
I'll use the quick selection tool I'll
make the tool size 10 pixels
and drag over the subject to select it
I can click either the refine edge
button or go to select and refine edge
I did an in-depth tutorial on refine
edge so if you'd like to watch it I
provided that link as well i'll click
and adjust its size to make the brush
big enough to cover the edge of the hair
I'll output it as a new layer and click
remove all its color by pressing ctrl
shift you on windows or command shift
you on a Mac to adjust its brightness
and contrast open your levels window by
pressing ctrl or command l

position the trees or what else your
image is over your subject you can

Hi. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV.
I'm going to show you how to create a double-exposure
image from 2 photos. If you'd like to use
this image, I provided its link in my video's
description or project files. For the second
photo, you'll get the best results if the
person you choose has deep shadows on one
side like these examples that I got from Shutterstock.com.
It doesn't matter if they're color or black
and white. However, if your photo has general
lighting like this one, I'll show you how
to transition it into deep shadows. If you'd
like to use this photo, I provided its link.
The first step is to create a selection around
your subject. For this example, I'll use the
Quick Selection Tool. I'll make the tool's
size 10 pixels and drag over the subject to select it.
I can click either the Refine Edge button or go to Select and Refine Edge.
I did an in-depth tutorial on Refine Edge, so
if you'd like to watch it, I provided that
link, as well. I'll check Smart Radius and
adjust its size to make the brush big enough
to cover the edge of the hair.
I'll output it as a New Layer and click OK.
Remove all its color by pressing Ctrl + Shift + U on Windows
or Cmd + Shift + U on a Mac. To adjust
its brightness and contrast, open your Levels
window by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + L.
Drag the white and black Input levels to the point just before where the histogram really starts
to rise and click OK.
To make room for the tropical trees,
make sure your subject is
positioned to one side of your document. Just
press “v” to open your Move Tool and drag
it over. Make a copy of it by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + J.
Click the "fx" icon and click "Gradient Overlay".
Change the Blend Mode to "Multiply" and click the gradient bar.
Click the "Black, White" gradient and click OK.
Make the Angle: minus 180 degrees and
the Scale: 40%. Then, click OK.
To restore some of the brightness on her face,
click the Layer mask icon to make a layer mask next
to the active layer. Open your Brush Tool
and Brush Picker.
We'll adjust the size in a moment.
Make the Hardness: 0% and the Opacity
and Flow: 100%. Then, press Enter or Return.
To make your brush larger or smaller, press
the right or left bracket keys on your keyboard.
Now, brush over your subject in areas where
you'd like to restore its original brightness.
Click the bottom layer to make it active and
click the New Layer icon to make a new layer above it.
We'll fill the empty layer with white. To
do this, press Shift + F5 key at the top of
your keyboard to open the Fill window. Or,
you can go to Edit and Fill.
Open the fly-out menu, click White and click OK.
Open the image
you'd like to blend into the person. You can
use this one, but feel free to use anything
you want, as long as its bottom is relatively
dark and dense and ends somewhere at its top.
Ultimately, we want the top of the image to
be pure white. If you're using image, too,
open your Dodge Tool. If your foreground color
isn’t white, press "D" on your keyboard
to make your foreground and background colors
black and white respectively, and then, press
"x" to invert them. Make the Range: Highlights
and the Exposure: 100%. Adjust the size of
your tool and brush over the sky.
To place the trees onto your subject,
press "v" to
open your Move Tool and drag it up onto the
tab of your subject. Without releasing your
mouse or pen, drag it down onto the image and
release. We want to place the trees on top
of the person. To do this, just drag the trees
layer to the top of the Layers panel.
Go to Edit, Transform and "Rotate 90 degrees Clockwise".
Let's temporarily reduce its opacity, so we
can see the subject under it.
To resize and position it, open your Transform Tool by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + T.
Go inside the Transform and
position the trees or whatever else your image
is over your subject. You can always reposition
and resize it later, if you want. Press Enter
or Return to accept it.
Increase its opacity back to 100%.
Click the Layer Mask icon to
make a layer mask next to the active layer.
Press “B” to open your Brush Tool. Increase
your brush size a bit and brush over the left
side of the trees to mask them out. To restore
back areas of the trees, press "x" to invert
your foreground and background colors and
adjust the brush size if you need to.Now,
brush over those areas of the trees you want
to restore back. Continue to finesse your
image brushing in and restoring back areas
until the two images create a double-exposure.
