1. Open a 600 by 600 canvas BLACK, don’t worry about the size, we’ll adjust that later

NB If you are using coloured images, you need to change them to greyscale: Image – Greyscale – Image – Increase colour depth to 16 million.

2. Copy images and paste onto your black canvas. Place them where you think they look best. Rename images 1, 2 and 3

3. Close off two of the images, it doesn’t matter which ones and click on your freehand tool with these settings:

4. Remove all the background around your image making sure not to get too close to the body.
5. Select a piece of background with your freehand tool: see image

6. Hit delete several times until you are happy with your result
7. Repeat this for your next two images until you have something like this:

8. Next we will change the opacity of our layers
