Photo collages of the tour

I’ve been wanting to learn how to use Photoshop so I bought a copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 and spent some figuring out how to use the tools for blending photos together.

All three of these collages were created on a 16:9 ratio canvas that is 26.667″ wide by 15″ high.  At 300 dpi this makes each JPG file 8000 x 4500 pixels.  The 16:9 ratio was used because that is a common “widescreen” ratio used for PC laptops and widescreen computer monitors which makes the image good for desktop wallpaper.

At 300 dpi these collages should also be good for printing and mounting, or framing, to hang on the wall in your man cave.

This is the main collage.  It has more than 125 individual image layers.

This was the second collage created just for fun and to see how the tools work for selecting, clipping and erasing the background.  A amateur job with several missing feet, legs and other appendages.

From the archives, here is the video from the Washer Toss tournament on the street in front of The Dunvegan in St. Andrews in 2011.  When the police showed up and joined in, that was the highlight of the night.  For the guys who have not met MikeM yet, that’s him at the start of the video.
