In this tutorial I show you how to join people together using Photoshop. While my video only demonstrates how this is done using a photo of a male model and female model, these same steps can be repeated with 3 or more people as well. In addition to that, you can even use these steps for objects, cars or anything else that you can think of.
Below you can see what my picture looked like after I finished editing it:
As you can see, I also placed them together in a new background… Of course you can always add a person to another picture which has a person and background in it.

- Quick selection tool.
- Background eraser tool.
- Eraser tool.
- Rectangular marquee tool.
