Lesson 8. Combining Multiple Images > Project 4: Using a gradient clipping path

Project 4: Using a gradient clipping path

Digital-graphics work consistently challenges you to strike a balance between flexibility and file size. Flexibility means the ability to go back and revise your work. In the previous project, the procedure gives priority to limiting the file size. If you wanted to go back and switch the positions of the artichoke and the tomato quadrants, you’d have to start from the beginning because those pixels are no longer in the final work file.

In this project, you’ll give priority to flexibility. You’ll apply a clipping layer to combine one image with another. Your final work file will contain all the original pixel information, so that you can go back later and make adjustments whenever needed.
