This year at PhotoCamp Utah I taught a Photoshop class. I had a LOT of fun teaching it and hope that the participants learned a thing or two. :) I showed everyone how to create one of my “Headache” composite images using CS4 (here’s a link to the final image).

For those of you who would like to give the tutorial a try I created a PDF file and have the two images needed to complete it available for download:


(You are free to use the above images non-commercially for use in the tutorial above, and if you would like to post the image online somewhere I would appreciate a link back to this post … thanks!)

Here’s one of my video tutorials on the same thing with similar instruction … I changed a few things around with the live demo but it gets to the same end-result.
