Tutorial Tuesday – Panning

Oh what a challenge, my point and shoot refuses do this type of photography. But I was saved my March/April edition of Adobe Photoshop Elements arrived in the mail and there was an article on how to fake panning.  So I had a go and this is the result.

Fake Panning





L3.Reload your saved selection -Selection-Load Selection OK. Shift-Ctrl_I to inverts              selection then Crtl-X to cut the selection from blurred layer. This places a clear image of the boy over the blurred.

L2 Background copy, I selected the boy using quick select and lasso tools.  Save the selection  (under Select Tab) then create copy (Ctrl-J) on new layer. Next Filter/Blur/    Motion use slides to obtain desired effect remember the angle is important.

You can select the background instead of the subject.
