  1. Thank you so much for this tutorial! I’ve been looking for a reliable one for quite a while and yours was extremely helpful!

  2. The link to the sky image is no longer valid but you can still access the image by downloading the completed psd document posted by the author. That should allow you to complete the tutorial :)

  3. I have to agree with the Anonymous comment, While this had many good concepts. I spent 10-11 hours ( Not a Noob to PS CC) and due to you "resizing and mislabeling your layer names caused undue confusion made two separate attempts to complete this tutorial without success. I really appreciate your efforts to learn others learn and applaud your own ability to create, but perhaps more clear instructions than "move it to left a bit after resizing, See picture" since the guide photo made no sense. Neither did the order and naming of the layers in several steps. I spent more time trying to figure out the instructions. Just feedback. Not trying to toll you. Thanks

  4. Wow, I like that you provide all of the files for us to learn with. that makes things so much easier. Once I am done with something like this, I know I can replicate it.

  5. Honestly a bit hard to follow. I feel like the dimensions and scale of the mountain and waterfall photos don't match up to what is pictured. I spent way too much time trying to match the photos the way they are in the tutorial. I had to stretch some of them, and move even the first one partly off the canvas, which is not mentioned. I got more experience with blending scenic stock photos that I'll use in the future, but I'm giving up on this tutorial.

    1. The point of a tutorial is not to copy exactly, but vaguely. You're never going to fully replicate what you see. The idea is to experiment, mess around with it, until you're satisfied. If you try to make your image an exact copy, you're going to get very frustrated and it will take a lot longer too. I would suggest messing around with the sizes until you like what you have. Then continue from there.
