    I’ve spent the last couple days trying to get my head around double
    exposures! Your tutorial is by far the best and simplest one I have
    watched! Plus I love the accent! ;)

    Thanks for this tutorial! I have been doing double exposures in such an
    obscurely difficult manner, the way you do it is so much simpler!

    You should look into using masks instead of erasing. It will make your life
    so much better. Also learn short cuts. And use something like Quick
    Selection Tool instead of magic wand, it will give you more control.
    Thanks for the tutorial.

    I feel like whenever I use the magic wand tool its like playing
    ‘Minesweeper’. No matter where I click, it decides to select everywhere! I
    realize this usually has to do with a busy background. But Even with solid
    background portraits it still did the same thing. Any suggestions? Thank
    you for the tutorial, overall – Great!!

    instead of doing copy and paste to layer the images, you can just drag and
    drop. much quicker and easier. you dont have to use the eraser tool to
    remove the background, just hit the delete key on your keyboard, then you
    wont miss any spots in the selected area! other than that, amazing concept
    and result!
