PHOTOSHOP – COMBINING IMAGES
Use the cropping/selecting skills you learned in the action sequence to combine two or more images in Photoshop. The final image should look plausible, and realistic. A gerbil in your pencil case, elephant in your cupboard or celebrity in your closet are all possibilities.
You can use images from the web and combine them with ones you have taken.
