About This Class

Photoshop for Lunch™ is a series of short video courses you can study in bite size pieces such as at lunchtime. In this course you'll learn to make a Photo Texture Collage. You will see how to create a mirror image effect from a photo and apply a Gradient Map to it. You will learn how to blend the gradient map into the image using a blend mode and a mask. You will see how to add a texture to a photo and how to blend it in. We'll finish with some custom lightrays. The photo and the texture used can be downloaded free of charge so you can follow along with the class. Here are the download links:

Very interesting technique!!! Love Helen's classes.

Graphic designer who never stops learning.

This is a very, VERY useful class for anyone who, like me, learnt the main instruments of the PS but still got no idea how to use them in order to create an interesting picture. Am so excited about starting using my new skills!
Some of my best artwork has roots in this class
