STEP 1.

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


STEP 2.

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.

Here's what happened.

STEP 4.

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.
