First, I imported five different images, of the man, the woman, fire, the door, the car, and the Baretta.
File _ New _ Wanted
Layer _ New 1. man 2. woman 3. fire 4. door 5. car 6. Beretta
Next, I used the Move tool to move all the images and the layers as desired. I placed the man on the extreme left, the woman on the extreme right. I also rotated the image of the pistol and moved it to the right bottom corner to get what you see below.
Move tool (V, shift+V, ctrl+V) all the layers...
In each layer, I deleted the background.
Quick Selection Tool (W), Vagic Wand Tool (W), Quick Mask (Q)
Here's what happened.
Now that I have worked on the backgrounds, I concentrated on the adjustments of the image. I worked on each layer to adjust the brightness, contrast and color balance. There is no specific procedure, but each layer has to be worked upon in such a way that the combined image has the desired effect.
Image _ Adjustments _ brightness / contrast, color balance.
File save as Wanted_HDR
Image _ Adjustments _ HDR toning
1. Shadows -100
2. Saturation 0
3. TOP keys Gamma and Exposure
After working on the tone and detail of the image under HDR toning, I had to adjust the brightness and contrast. I used the Dodge and Burn tools as indicated below..
Image _ Adjustments _ brightness / contrast
Here I was working tools.
blue - Dodge Tool (15-30%)
red - Burn Tool (15-30%)
Filter _ Sharpen
Finally, I sharpened the image a bit to get the final image below:
The final result.
