Lesson 12. Creating Special Effects > Snapping images into position

Snapping images into position

Your guides are in place, so now you’re ready to arrange your four cropped images in the montage.

1.
Choose File > Open Recent > Pears.jpg. The pears image opens in a separate image window.

2.
In the toolbox, select the Move tool (), if it is not already selected.

3.
Click the Move tool anywhere in the pear image and drag from that image window to the larger Montage.jpg window, and release the mouse button.

4.
Still using the Move tool, drag the pears image into the upper left quadrant of the image so that its lower right corner snaps into place against the intersection of the two guides at the center of the window.

In the Layers palette, you’ll notice that the pears image is on a new layer, Layer 1.

5.
Choose Window > Pears.jpg to make it active again, and then close it, either by clicking the close button or by choosing File > Close.

6.
Repeat Steps 15 for the three other cropped files, placing the leaves image in the upper right quadrant, the dandelion in the lower left quadrant, and the sand in the lower right quadrant. All the images should fit snugly against the intersection of the guides in the center of the window.

7.
Choose View > Show > Guides to hide the guides.
