In today’s lesson, I will show you how to create a double exposure effect with Photoshop. We’ll be working with 3 different images to apply the effect.
Getting started: Be sure to download all the stock images I’ve provided below. Estimated time to complete – About 20 – 30 minutes.
Quick Summary and Tools: We’ll add our first image into Photoshop (Man) we’ll then extract the man from the background, add a mask. Add our buildings image, apply a black and white adjustment layer to both images. I will share some of the B&W adjustment layer settings so that the two images blend in well. I will then clean up the building image a little bit. Using the adjustment layer mask, I will bring back some of the green parts of the image, such as the trees and other items. For some of the final steps, you can add a third image, examples – birds or falling person. You can then add a nice gradient map for the final step, or a photo filter to really make your image stand out.

Double Exposure Effect with Photoshop
A double exposure effect is the process of combining two images or more images together into one. The final results should tell a story, and the images used should all be seen by blending them in. Experimenting with the blending options will give you the best results, altering the opacity will also help.
