Blending Question
« on: January 10, 2006, 06:27:34 PM »

Can Photoshop Elements 3.0 be used in the digital blending procedures described by Mickael in his article Understanding Digital Blending or is the full blown Photoshop required?

You can blend exposures with PSE.  The eraser version works just fine.  But if you need a mask you'll have to hunt down a way to get one.  (I think you just add in a level adjustment layer and use its mask.)

Many thanks but since I am new to this I need to ask you what you mean by The eraser?

One method of blending is to stack your two layers and then use the eraser to erase away portions of the top layer to show the layer underneath.  Simpler than using a layer mask.  More of a pain.
