Creating a Photo Backdrop

This is a quick technique for creating a traditional photographic background (a muslin, a backdrop, etc.) that you can composite portraits into. This technique is pretty handy if you need to take a snapshot of a person and make it look like a studio shot.

Step One

Start by creating a custom gradient that will form the basis of the backdrop. Press the G key to switch to the Gradient tool, then in the Options Bar click on the Edit button.
