Hello all. Does anyone know a technique in Photoshop for combining two images to simulate the old fashioned "slide sandwichs" many of us used to create physically in the past? I'm aware of how to transpose objects from one photo to another in Photoshop but the "slide sandwich" has a different look. The overlying image allows the underlying image to "bleed through" the highlights and midtones when rephotographed in a slide duplicator and only blocks out the underlying image in the deepest shadow areas. Is it possible to recreate this look or does this require computer mastery beyond my reasonably competent but still amateur level?

One of Photoshops most powerful features are it's layering and alpha channel functionaity. If you are attempting to selectivly bleed areas between two or more layers then the creation of a gray scale mask will do the trick. You can adjust the contrast values and brightness levels on the grayscale image and then apply it as a mask to hide or show as much as you wish. Combined with multiply and other options between layers can get you just about any effect you desire. To go into this in detail would fill several pages so it is best that you experiment to your hearts content
