My friend Irene recently introduced me to an app for the iPad called “PhotoTangler.” I loved the name so much that I was eager to learn about it. The app takes distinct images and seamlessly blends them into a collage that is unified with texture. I wondered how easy it would be to accomplish the same effect in Photoshop. It turns out that the process is both uncomplicated and a great way to engage your right brain!
To create a successful photo tangle, begin by choosing two or more images that possess harmonious colors. You can even select photos with a theme or photos that tell a story. Choosing the photos is half the fun. You’ll also need a texture. In today’s Photoshop Workbench, I’m using one from the awesome Shadowhouse Creations site.
