Want to create images with more impact? Jim will demonstrate the power of compositing to completely change the mood of an image, and open-up your creative space to images that mix your imagination with your digital captures. He'll show examples and explain how to create them using Photoshop and filters from Topaz Labs. This talk will encourage you to imagine and create images with more impact.
