In the Special Effects competition we saw some amazing composite images - blends of two or more images or graphic elements. Compositing in Photoshop can get complicated quickly, but there are a number of fairly easy techniques for merging two or more images to create fanciful scenes or double exposures, to add texture to an image, or to mimic in-camera special effects. In the process of demonstrating these techniques, we will learn some basic Photoshop concepts - object selection, layers, layer styles, and masking.
