How to Create New Worlds with Adobe Stock and Photoshop


A couple of weeks ago, I partnered with Adobe UK and Adobe Stock to create images for their multi-localism campaign. Multi-localism refers to the interconnectedness of the world through travel and technology, and how it has made the world a smaller place. In this article, I will show you how I used Adobe Stock and Photoshop to create three images that showcase both my everyday views and extraordinary travel locations.

Image 1: Canal View

The first image I created is called “Canal View.” I started by walking along the River Medlocke in Manchester, which is often overlooked and unused. As I walked, I realized it would be a perfect location for an Adobe Stock image. I then searched Adobe Stock for a natural and impressive backdrop and found a stunning image of Skogafoss in Iceland. I downloaded the preview and dragged it onto my Photoshop canvas.

To ensure the perspective and alignment are right, I lowered the opacity of the Skogafoss image and positioned it where I wanted it in the image. Once I was satisfied with the placement, I increased the opacity back to full and licensed the full-resolution Skogafoss image from my Adobe Stock library. I then moved the Skogafoss layer below the Manchester layer and used the pen tool to mask around the buildings to exclude the sky and make the waterfall appear behind them. This process involved meticulous masking, but with the straight lines in the image, it was fairly straightforward.

Enhancing Realism

To make the image look as realistic as possible, I made a few additional tweaks. First, I created a new layer and used a soft brush to add mist around the waterfall. This not only adds realism but also helps to blend any imperfections between the two images. Additionally, I addressed a reflection issue at the bottom of the image where buildings that were masked out in the waterfall reflection were still visible. To fix this, I merged all visible layers into a new layer and created a rectangular marquee selection to select everything below the reflection.

These are just a few examples of how I used Adobe Stock and Photoshop to create new worlds in my images. With the wide range of high-quality images available on Adobe Stock, combined with the powerful editing capabilities of Photoshop, you can let your imagination run wild and bring your visions to life.


Through the collaboration with Adobe UK and Adobe Stock, I was able to create images that showcase both my everyday views and extraordinary travel locations. The combination of Adobe Stock’s extensive image library and the editing capabilities of Photoshop allowed me to seamlessly merge different landscapes and create unique scenes. So, why not unleash your creativity and start creating your own new worlds with Adobe Stock and Photoshop? The possibilities are endless!
