The size of the focal object in the scene is important. There is a simple rule that you can use to ensure you get this right: the focal object should fill about 70% of the space on the canvas (Fig.30).

You can make changes at this point such as a camera distortion effect. This is done by using the Warp tool in transform mode and adds movement to the image. The shape of the ship indicate a sharp upwards movement (Fig.31).

Choice Of Elements

When you have decided on the final direction of your image you can collect some images that you will incorporate into the scene. Preferably these should be high resolution, but if the images only feature a small amount in your image then there is no need to make them large.

Placement Of Elements

Before you start adding images the image size should be very high.

The background colors are important as they set the tone for the image (Fig.32).

The photographs were added from the bottom up. Use the Warp tool to adjust these (Fig.33 - 34).
