Good effort :)
Always put a border around your work. When you have finished your image, go Layers>Flatten. Then go Edit>Stroke. To get your border 3 px, set the width to 3 & black, then go edit>stroke again, set the width to 2 & white and then edit>stroke again and set it to 1 and black.

Don't lower the fill or opacity of cuts and pictures. Use the blending modes instead. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v407/slothfulcowie/screen.jpg When you get better, find a tutorial on how to mask.

You use it to fade around the edges of cuts and pictures for blending. I rarely do cuts I really only use the mask to fade around the edges rather than selecting and feathering and then using the eraser. I also mask rather than erase when I do make cuts. The beauty of masking is that it is easy to get a bit back rather than undo. If you erase part of some a leg, for example, you can't get that leg back. If you decide you need the leg later on down the track just go back into quickmask mode and unmask the leg.


This Image , which you have seen is all masking and using the layer blend modes. I dragged each layer onto the background and then masked each layer. I then arranged them so I had to unmask some bits and mask some more on some of the images.

Confused? I'm terrible at explaining things :(
