One of the most rewarding projects you can tackle in Photoshop--or Elements for that matter--is combining images. Whether you're swapping backgrounds, spicing up a boring background, or creating a complex collage, this is where things start getting fun. In this free, hands-on webcast, you'll learn several non-destructive techniques for combining images, such as:

How to use gradient masks
How to create hand-painted masks
How to create solid color fades
