Once you've decided on your style, click ok.

Final adjustments

So the effect is finished, but I want to make some adjustments.

What I did first is move a little to the left, to change the position. But as you see, the edge of the picture comes out, correct this with a soft edged eraser (E).

And we're done!

Now you can try out combining different images, colors, channel placement, compositions… and see how many awesome results you can get.

So, try it out and see you on the next tutorial!
