Instant Digital Download - 4.2 MB Png File on a transparent background 4320 × 2432 pixels
This is a digital image of a peacock, designed for photographers to use as an overlay as an element in their composite images. You will need to use a software program such as Photoshop that allows you to work on layers and will need at least a basic knowledge of layers, masks and blending modes to be able to use this product effectively.
I will be adding new backgrounds, overlays and other digital resources for photographers all the time but if you have any specific requests I'm also happy to shoot to order so feel free to email me with any requests at fotographer.nz [!at] gmail.com
Instructions for use:
* Download this digital file (download should start as soon as payment has gone through).
* Open your own image that you want to add the overlay to in your editing software that allows you to work in layers (eg. Photoshop)
* Open this file in your editing software copy and paste it or drag and drop it as a layer on top of your own image.
*Add shadows to anchor your overlay so that it looks as if it was really there (a thin dark contact shadow where the feet touch the ground and then a bigger very soft shadow to mimic the shape of the overlay often works well - try to imagine where the light is coming from in your image (look at other objects in the picture to get some clues) then try to mimic the shape of the shadows that you add for the peacock.
* Do any colour work, filters etc and run any actions that you would like as this often pulls the elements in your images together as well.
* Merge the layers into one (Shift + Ctrl + E in Photoshop).
