Photoshop Compositing Secrets by Matt Kloskowski
Welcome to the photo and video download page, where you can download the same photos I used in the book, so you can follow right along with the projects.
Before we get to what to do with these photos, I want to give credit to the wonderful people at iStockphoto and Fotolia. They were kind enough to let me use some of their amazing stock imagery in the book, but what you’re seeing here is just a tiny sample of the thousands of amazing stock photos they offer. So, please drop by their websites at www.istockphoto.com and www.fotolia.com and see for yourself.
Most of the shots here are mine, and I also have shots from my friends RC Concepcion and Tom Bol, and those are downloadable here, too. Of course, the whole idea behind this book is that you’ll use these techniques on your own photos, but until you do, you can practice on these.
Just a quick reminder: These downloadable, high-resolution photos—from iStockphoto, Fotolia, myself, and my friends and made available to you here—are licensed for your personal use only in practicing the techniques shown in the book. They are not licensed for use in any other manner, including commercial projects, websites, or any other use. Thanks for honoring our copyrights.
The videos are embedded using Adobe Flash Player, so if you don’t have it, you’ll need to download it (it’s free) from Adobe’s website at www.adobe.com (look under Download on the right). Because they are in Flash, they cannot be saved to your hard drive, but must be watched on this site.
Well, that’s pretty much it. I’m truly grateful to you for buying this book and I hope you enjoy following along with these images. I think you’ll love to see just how easy it is to composite your images.
Enjoy! —Matt Kloskowski
