Step 16

Reactivate all layers and put the 'Mountain' at the bottom, below everything.

Step 17

To have a better blending we will add a Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer only for the 'Landscape 1' Image.

We will set the Lightness to -44.

Step 18

We don't want that this adjustment affects the whole image, but just the top.

Add a clipping mask and with the black color we will paint on it to cover the bottom part of the image.

Step 19

We need to illuminate a bit the centre of the image.

Create a new layer above everything and with a soft brush and color white paint something like that:

  1. thanks for the good tutorial.
    and i have a question for several step.

    '...and with a soft brush and color white paint'
    -> in this step, How much value for 'Opacity' to brush?
    because, i can't make it like 'Step.20'.

  2. A simple to follow and interesting tutorial, I knew a lot of it already, but it was insightful to use adjustment layers to change layer properties, normally I'd of just adjusted the layer itself. Thanks for helping me to think about design in a different way.

  3. This is a wonderful tutorial, thank you so much. There are a couple things that could be improved:

    1) Step 18 is a little confusing: why do we need to add a mask to the Hue/Saturation 1 adjustment layer if we are clipping it to Landscape 1? I feel that we are masking the effects of the adjustment layer and allowing to be seen the effects on just the top part, which in that layer is blank.

    Also, you forgot to mention the Curves adjustment layer for the Mountains layer (though that is easy to figure out).

    2) The tutorial goes from step 20 to step 31.

    3) The "About" section at the bottom could be changed too ;)

    Thank you again for this tutorial! First one I actually enjoyed doing :)
