Intro

Photomontages are limited only by your imagination. In this Photoshop tutorial, you’ll learn how to create an amazing art using lots of different photographs – none of which are that great on their own – and learn how to use vibrant colour for a rich, vibrant, Spring-like feel.

This tutorial will also polish your skills with blending modes, brushes, shadows, Photoshop effects and clipping masks to create a vibrant and extremely upbeat scene. This tutorial is all about fun – feel free to adapt it, adding your own elements.
