This is really cool! How did you do it? #4515012

Lynne Hoad July 16, 2007

Thanks Toni. First I made a golden sun in PS with the flaming pear filter solar cell then I used flood to make the water. Then I used a photo I took of the sunset on the hills across the road and used flood on that. Then I changed the color to gold on a dragonfly photo. Now I had 3 golden pics. I then merged the dragonfly onto the top of the solar/water scene and then finally I shrank the pic of the sunset to fit it up the top on the waterline where the first sun had been, merging the two floods together. I have a free program called merge that I use. I don't know how to do it on PS yet. Hope that makes sense and answers your question! #4515912
