Chapter 11. Image Blending > Four Ways to Blend

Four Ways to Blend

In this chapter we'll explore the features that allow you to blend multiple images into one seamless composite. We'll cover grouping layers, blending sliders, layer masks, and layer clipping paths. Once you've mastered all four, you'll be able to blend your images together like magic. But before we start blending some images, let's take an introductory look at how these features work.
