Hi,

I am new to photoshop and I need of your help. I searched Google for this but in vain.


I have the following 5 images and I want to merge (or whatever you guys call it in your graphical language) them all and create a single header for my new site. Giving it one color tone which is [COLOR="#456389"]#456389[/COLOR].

For example i got the following header from a site and this guy has used 6-7 images to create one single header. Also see the images has one single color tone matching the color theme of that site.

If you are using Photoshop CS3 then this will take you quite literally just a few seconds.

Click on 'File" then "Automate" and click on the option "Photomerge". This should come up with a box asking for you to pick the type of merge you'd like and then to select each of the files you'd like to merge. Once you have selected the files click on OK and they should merge.

I would add however that for them to merge successfully you might need to resize the images so that they are all of a similar size.

If you are using an older version of Adobe Photoshop let me know and i'll provide you with another alternative. I'm just about to knock together a tutorial on how to do this and i'll post it here on Ozzu in a short while.

It's called a Collage. Here's a tutorial to get you started until SB puts his up. (I'm sure his will be better *wink).

If you're new to photoshop I'm not sure if this is going to be easy - it's a daunting undertaking learning about how to utilize layers and masks in one quick ten minute session.
