Photoshop Notes

I keep a few notes on how to do things in Photoshop and Lightroom here.

Panoramas from Lightroom

  • Select the photos you want to include in Lightroom
  • Right click > Edit in > Merge to Panorama in Photoshop…
  • If you need to fill in blank areas of the panorama:
  • Select all layers then Layer > Merge Visible
  • Hold the Ctrl key while clicking the box on the layer (selects the areas with content)
  • Select > Inverse
  • Edit > Fill > Content Aware
  • Layer > Flatten Image
  • Crop
  • Save

Dark Frame Subtraction Tutorial

Blending 2 photos

  • Add photo onto separate layer (edit > paste)
  • Add layer mask
  • Select layer mask
  • Set foreground color to black and background color to white
  • Select brush tool
  • paint areas where you want to reveal the photo below (with black as foreground)
  • If you need to reverse the effect and show the top photo, change the foreground color to white and paint.
