Class Introduction

hello and welcome to essential compositing tips and techniques in Photoshop 2021. My name is Jesus Ramirez. You probably know me from my YouTube channel, the Photoshop training channel. In this class, I'm going to show you the essentials that you must know to create realistic composites. In Photoshop, we'll discuss the most important principles, like perspective, color, matching and masking. The goal for this class is for you to understand what makes a composite look realistic, and you can problem solve in Photoshop. By the end of this class, you'll be able to take multiple images from different sources and combine them to create a realistic composite. Make sure to check out the downloadable so that you can follow along with me and so you can take advantage of the free presets and brushes. And by the way, if you have any questions regarding this course, make sure that hit over to my website, PTC vids dot com, and message me through the contact form.

Ratings and Reviews


This course teaches what you need to know about creating composites. As alway Jesus delivers in a clear, precise and fun way. You can just tell this guy has a great personality and he loves what he does. I greatly enjoyed the course and would strongly recommend it. A big thumbs up!!!

a Creativelive Student

One of the best courses I've done on CreativeLive and that's a high bar! An incredible mix of in depth guidance but also some simple photoshop tips along the way, I had so many 'wow' moments, learning things I had no idea you could do in Photoshop. Really a good pace too. Quite a short course but so many good lessons to revisit. Great work!

Jorge Perez-Martinez

I think this is a wonderful course. It goes into the key aspects that one needs to know to make a good composite. Jesus does not go into needles details and assumes a basic knowledge of photoshop; this make the course very manageable as far a its length. Highly recommended!
