Natrix natrix

By daffydill56
Grass Snake (Natrix natrix)

Remember these? This is my first montage, one or two of these I haven't yet posted, of the snake I rescued from death in my pond. She got tangled up in the netting, and I had to cut her free.

Superb montage Fran. It may "only" be a grass snake, but it looks pretty damn fearsome to me!

Best wishes,

Not easy to explain Mike, but here goes........

Go to file in PS and select new.
From the preset menu choose a size large enough to contain the collage.
To select images required, click on file and open.
Select the move tool to place the picture where required.
To resize,rotate or move the copied image choose image>transform>free transform.
Drag the centre,corner or sides to transform image as desired.
When you are happy with the result, click on ok.

I do hope this helps, it is not easy at first but I wish you good luck and will keep an eye out for your next montage upload :o)
