iPad Photoshop Touch Tutorial #2 – How To Take An Image From A Photo And Blend It Into Another

by Colin Jones

In the 2nd of our Photoshop Touch for iPad tutorials, we will learn how to add an image from one photo and blend it into another. This is quite easy to do, it’s a lot of fun and comes in very handy – For example you might want to add a logo from one image onto an other, insert a relative into a family photo, or add a person onto a blank landscape. Let’s get to work.

Step 1) From the main menu, choose to Begin A Project and choose an image from one of the sources – For this tutorial we have chosen an image we would like to add a moon to.

Step 2) Once you have decided on the image you want to work with – Tap on the + button in the bottom right-hand corner and choose to add a Photo Layer. As you can see from the images, we have selected a photo of a moon in this new Photo Layer.

Step 3) Once you have your new image on top of your original photo, you can position it wherever you wish to. In our image we have placed the moon in the top right-hand corner.

Step 4) As you can see from the photos, the colours surrounding the moon, make it obvious that it has been added from another photo – To correct this, we need to use a Blending Mode. From the bottom right hand corner of the interface, tap on the icon that looks like 2 sheets of paper, it is next to the + icon. Now tap on Blend Mode and from the drop-down options that appear, choose Screen – This will take out the unwanted black colour from the 2nd image (in this case the moon) so that it blends in with the original image.

So there you have it, a quick and easy way to import an image from one photo and blend it into another. Give it a try!
