Happy October!

I'm excited to be hosting the Technique Challenge at Design House Digital this month!

If you're like me, you're always striving to capture that perfect photograph. When multiple people are involved, especially when some or all of those people are children, that perfect photo can be quite elusive. That's where your digital skills come to the rescue!

For this month, I challenge you to combine or merge two or more photos to get that perfect group shot and then create a layout with that photo. I typically use my selection tool, copy and paste the "good" face over the bad one, do some enhancements for lighting or color, maybe some selective erasing, and then use the clone stamp and/or healing brush on the flattened image. Voila!

Here's a few examples of photos that I merged:


So, let's see what you've got!

One participant will be selected randomly at the end of the month to get a $5 gift certificate to Design House Digital, but you must post your layout/project in the October Technique Challenge Gallery and link us up in the challenge thread!

Be sure to check out the other great challenges for October while you’re there!
