Photoshop Tutorial - Compositing Images --------------------------------------------------------------------- The cityscape that you have been destroying is coming along, but you still need to add some other quick elements to increase the effects of old age and dilapidation. Conduct a Google image search for "stained paper." Pick an image that contains elements of old rust and dirt. If you need to, adjust the Saturation by navigating to the top menu bar and clicking Image -- Adjustments -- Hue/Saturation.? When it's ready, move the stained paper image over to the cityscape and place it behind the buildings. Try placing it behind two buildings next to each other. Grab the Eraser Tool and get rid of any extraneous area of the stained paper you don't want in the image. Once you've erased the extra area of the stained paper you don't want, place its layer in front of the cityscape. Move the stained paper back over on top of the area you just erased from. It should rest directly on top of the two buildings that it previously sat behind. In the drop down menu in the Layers panel, there are many compositing options. Try Color Burn to composite the stained paper over the buildings. Also, try reducing the Opacity to 50%.?
