Layer Mask lesson



Fun from year one.    Do something super creative.   




READ The link to the lesson is below the picture.  Download and open the two pics in the lesson so you have the ocean scene and the martini glass.  When you finish their instruction I want you to choose two more objects to use in the project using the layer mask tool.  So save two more pics That you add to the ocean/martini project.   Open them from PHOTOSHOP Do not drag them in or copy and paste.  Here is my example.  I added a dog in the glass and the gymnast.
