Make great art with merged photos.
Learn how — and why — to merge images.
Have you ever taken a series of photos that are good, but not great? With photo merging you can combine the best of your images into one, beautifully perfect photo. On your next shoot, make sure to get multiple shots of your subject and then follow these steps to easily merge two photos or more.
How to merge two photos.
Before you merge your photos, you want to make sure they’ll be compatible. In order to do this, keep your camera on the same settings throughout the shoot.
- Use a consistent focal length so that images you want to merge all have the same perspective.
- Create consistent lighting in order to have a cohesive sense of light in your final, merged image.
- Ensure resolution is consistent so that the final product has a consistent image quality.
- Edit to create identical white balance if the photos you want to merge were taken at different times, so that the general tonality is as close as possible.
