Next, open the stock image "sky from plane III" by deadenddoll-stock. Once open activate the Move tool (V) and drag this image to our canvas. Put this image above the "sky 1" image but still below all the layers that have been created.

Rename this layer to "sky 2".

Move and position it as shown on the image below:

Step 18

Activate the Eraser tool (E) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 500px

  • Flow: 100%
  • #: ffffff

Now that we're done with the hills and the background, select all these layers and press Ctrl/Cmd + G to group them. Name this group to "Background".

Note: Renaming a group is similar to renaming a layer.

Step 20: Create the Man

Now, we will be adding the man jumping off the cliff. To start, open the stock image: "Jump12" by Danger99Stock; once the image is open, activate the Magnetic Lasso Tool (L).

After creating a selection area around him, activate the Move tool (V) and drag him to our canvas. Put this layer above the "Background" group. Rename this layer to "Man".

The "man" should be positioned here upon moving:

Activate the Move tool (V) and drag it to the position shown below:

Step 23

The result:

Step 24

In the Layer window, click on the "Create New Fill/Adjustment layer button".

Once it is open, input the following values:

  • Exposure: -0.38
  • Offset: 0.0435
  • Gamma Correction: 1.03

After hitting OK, right click on this Exposure layer and then click on Create Clipping Mask.

The exposure layer would then be applied only to the "man". See image below:

Now, select all the layers we created in this step and group them (Ctrl/Cmd + G). Name this group to "Man".

Step 25 - Create the Woman

Now, we will be creating the woman who also jumped off the cliff. To start, open "Longing 8" by intergalacticstock. Activate the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) and create a selection area around the woman. See image below:

image072[5]

Once you've created the selection area, activate the Move tool (V) and drag the woman to our canvas, put it above all the layers and groups that we've created. Once on the canvas, rename that layer to "woman".

Move and position as shown below:
