Chapter 3. Raw Hide: Mastering Camera Raw > Bracketing with Camera Raw - Pg. 75

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: Now you should have both versions open in Photoshop: the brighter one exposed for the highlights (to bring out the kettle) and the darker one exposed for the shadows (to bring out the gray background and the shadows below the kettle). Arrange the windows so you can see both onscreen at the same time. Step Four: Press V to get the Move tool, press-and- hold the Shift key, and drag-and-drop the darker version on top of the lighter version. The key to this part is holding down the Shift key while you drag, which perfectly aligns the dark copy (that now appears on its own layer in the Layers palette) with the lighter version on the Background layer. (This exact alignment of one identical photo over another is referred to as being "pin registered.") You can now close the shadow docu- ment without saving, as both versions of the image are contained within the lighter version. Continued Mastering Camera Raw Chapter 3 75
