Adding a Person to a Group Photo in Photoshop

Sometimes you have a group photo that doesn't include the entire group. Maybe someone couldn't make it. Maybe you needed to be in the shot—but also needed to take the shot.

Whatever the reason, Photoshop offers the solution: You can simply composite the missing person into the group shot. In this course, photographer and educator Seán Duggan shows how. He uses Smart Objects to nondestructively resize the images, adds and refines a layer mask, and then inserts the missing person behind the group. With some simple tonal adjustments, the end result can look completely natural. In chapter 4, Seán tackles a fun bonus challenge: placing new figures in historical photos.
