Lesson 8. Combining Multiple Images > Project 3: Erasing areas of image layers

Project 3: Erasing areas of image layers

In this project, you’ll start with a Photoshop PSD file that we’re prepared for you. In it, four photographs have been stacked in layers, each one blocking your view of the ones below it. Your goal is to erase—cut holes, so to speak—in each layer, allowing parts of the other layers to show through. You’ll end up with a collage, piecing together the four fruits and vegetables into an equally divided image.

There are several ways to erase. One way is to use the Eraser tool, which replaces erased areas with the Background Color, just like a regular eraser removes pencil marks so that you can see the paper underneath. Another way is to use the Background Eraser tool, which replaces the erased area with transparent pixels, just like wiping wet paint off of a piece of glass. In either case, the process involves dragging the eraser over the area you want to remove.
