The Lessons:

Level 1: Tools and Basics
Award-winning Art Director Clint Davis teaches the tools the pros use to
make phenomenal composites. Make perfect selections using lasso,
magic wand, and the pen tool. Then, experiment with
filters & masks, Refine Edge, and learn to work in
Channels for optimal contrast and precision.

Level 2: Simple compositing
Gain compositing proficiency with real-world examples that you'll come across frequently.
Master model clipping, learn to use custom brushes to paint effects, practice refining edges on
blonde hair, & learn environment tricks such as sky extension, creating artifical shadows & clouds.

Level 3: Photo enhancement
Transform a practical image into fantasy.
Merge backgrounds for selective exposure, remove unwanted elements, and
embellish your environment with fog, moody skies, road cracks, and global
color filters.

Level 4: Magazine cover
Now you're ready to take it to the pro level. Master refining edges on animated or busy hair, combine multiple elements for planar compositing, and change light source direction for maximum believability. Then, turn on headlights, spin car wheels, and add smoke & exhaust. Finally, learn the fine art of precise positioning for layout and print publication.

Level 5: Advanced movie poster
It's time to put all your skills together and create a monster composite. Combine & blend complex elements and environment, paint light and shade with complex masks, create dust & missle trails, add global grunge effects, and move a model's legs, arms, or overall stance with Puppet Warp.
