What you will & won't learn in this video:
It is hard for me to explain in general how I "do things", so I decided to just give you some examples. Today, you will find some tips and tricks on choosing stock, putting objects together and how to use a cloud image to give your background that magic touch.
Please note that this is only part 01 of a walkthrough series involving the witches. There are [probably two] more episodes to get to the final version
May I follow along?
If you want to recreate my steps using the same images, you can do so, but if you upload your finished piece I would like to see some credit for the tutorial, preferably a link to the tutorial itself - and of course I would appreciate it if you showed it to me. I have a collection for all images that use my tutorials - it's great motivation for me to keep this up because while the creation of an image may not take much time by itself, the post-production (i.e. the actual creation of the video tutorial) takes lots of time. So motivation...
Quick Finder (total length: 11 minutes):
00:22 Choosing the witch stock & getting started (selections, masks, extending the dresses, image corrections, new document)
03:15 Choosing the background stock
04:00 Adjusting the background's atmosphere using a Photo Filter Adjustment Layer
04:35 Choosing the cauldron stock out of two different but similar photos; adjusting canvas size to fit with background size

Note: Raw video time recorded ~30 minutes (without looking for stock) sped up to fit the narration; the more things you try, the longer this stage of your workflow will be.

yeah, I'm so sorry about that! I realized too late and these days my time is so limited I thought it was better to upload and share instead of keeping it on my hard drive (where it would likely rot for lack of time to redo the sound)
