Lesson 5. Advanced Compositing > Blending with layer masks

Blending with layer masks

Layer masks let you hide or reveal parts of the artwork on an individual layer. When you hide artwork, that part of the layer becomes transparent, and underlying layers show through. You can control how much artwork on a layer is hidden or revealed by making selections for the mask and by painting on the mask using black, white, or shades of gray.

To blend the two copies of your image, you will first offset one and then use a layer mask to hide a portion of the top image.
