In this video I show you how to use the masking tool in Photoshop to cleanly blend multiple images in Photoshop into a banner type image. I also remove the background on a few images in order to place those over the blend of photographs. I took a few photographs of kayak fishermen and by using the masking tool in conjunction with the gradient tool created a selection that smoothly fades out. I then deleted that smooth fade and placed the next photograph under the faced area. This blends it well. I then took a couple ‘sponsor’ type images and removed the backgrounds of those images with the magic wand tool and I think also by squeezing the selection a bit to take that extra ‘white line’ from around those images.
Uses for a Banner with Fades
Usually you see these types of images for car advertisements that will show you various interior images and also profiles of the car. This can be a very effective image to convey a message, show contrast, or give a better view of something than can be done in a single photograph. These are also often used with portraits that show both the front view and profile of a subject in the same photograph.
