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:

So much to learn... Helen's classes are superb in that they focus on just a couple of techniques/tools to practice with - but you quickly realize how creative you can be with just a few new things to play with. Kudos on another class that's well-done!
Another winner Helen. The tip I got out of this class was in how you applied a light source to the project. Also, there are several tips on Blending Modes in this project.
Helen just keeps on producing knockout tutorials. I'm amazed at how much I can learn in less than an hour!
