Photoshopping Composite Images

May 24, 2022



Dr. Peter Luykx's new book, The Patchwork Human, contains many photos and historical artwork that add color to the writing. Part of my job was to find images that were legally available and, where necessary, edit them. For chapter 19, Dr. Luykx needed a photo of an extinction-level asteroid hitting a ranch in the western USA. Here is the final image:

This image is actually a composite of many images. Most are in the public domain, with the exception of the Bagg House, which required citation.

I also drew the diagrams for this book.
