Blending Photos with the Eraser Tool

There's lots of different ways you can blend photos depending on the look you want. Today I am going to show you the most basic way. We will use the eraser tool. Click on the Eraser tool and then find the "Brush" Menu at the top.

Here you can adjust how big the eraser is and then you see that hardness? We want that to be low, around 30%. This means it will kind of fade away from the eraser mark instead of making a big hole. This is what helps make it a gradual blend. I like to use big brushes and very soft and just work my way slowly around the image.

Also, let's adjust the opacity of the eraser.

around 50% is good or even lower. The more gradual the less likely you will have to undo a step.

I like to work around the photo on all the edges so there is no longer a hard edge where the photo ended. And then continue as you want to focus on the main object in your photo.

Here's my finished layout using my kit, Inspired by You. (also a template by Scrapping with Liz).
