Still waiting for parts in Fresno and still playing in ps. This is Sophie and she loves chasing seagulls. 3 pics put together. I think I'm doing it wrong but get them in there. I am using the place feature under File. Does anyone else do it that way? I've been told how to do it but it doesn't seem to work for me on CS3. Ho Hum....oh well. And thank you so much Dan for your UA yesterday. Hugs to you!...........Sandy

Can't help with the technique, I'm afraid, Sandy: quite beyond me! I think you have produced a fine image here, a beautiful backdrop for the rushing dog, and the slight blurring of it's outline helps to create a sense of movement which I find appealing.
Ronnie.

Never really thought of using 'Place', but having just had a go in my PS Elements, it does seem a quicker way of adding another image on top of your background image in a new Layer. May start using it! Anyway, this looks a super creation to me, Sandy, very well done Smile

Excellent image. Works for me, however you put it together.

I've been told by a mate at camera club that the place command doesn't work properly in CS3. I have CS5, & it works fine, but I'm not convinced it would have done what you wanted anyway. The reason I use it is because it saves me some work resizing competition shots. What I do is this.

Create a new black canvas 1024x768 (the size required by the Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union).
Open the new file with the "place" command instead of "open".
This places the new file in the centre of the canvas, & automatically resizes it to fit. It also makes it a smart object rather than a normal layer, whatever that means.
Flatten the image.

If that's what you were trying to do, then this is how it should work, but as I said, I don't think that Adobe got it right until at least CS4.

For composites, I find it better to roughly chop out the bit I want, paste it in as a layer, & use a layer mask to fine tune. Probably as you did.

Awesome, the lighting, the composition, and by the way its not how you do things, so much as the end result that counts. Or to put it another way if it is not broken don't fix it.
