2. Blend a Night Photo

Use a dark background to better blend your night time captures.

  • Holiday lights are best captured at dusk which means darker skies.
  • It’s ALWAYS best to use a darker background for these night-time photos.
  • Use one of the coordinating FotoBlendz mask to blend your image almost seamlessly into an Artsy Paper design.

 Tip. Modify the color and darkness of a background using the Hue/Saturation and/or Levels adjustments.

  • Move all the layers on top of an Artsy Paper and select the FotoBlendz layer in the Layers Panel.
  • Clip the photo to the FotoBlendz layer before recoloring and repositioning the FotoGlows.

Add some handwriting to you your layout to support your story and personalize.
