I'm trying to merge 2 photos together...a photo of me over a photo of a corridor in a hotel. That's easy enough but the problem is that the pic of me is too bright so I've adjusted the brightness (to make it darker) so it matches the brightness of the pic of the corridor but when I merge the 2 photos together the pic of the corridor goes darker too. That photo seems to have inherited the brightness adjust that I made on the photo of me. Is there a way to merge the photos so the pic I'm merging to (ie the corridor photo) doesn't change? I'm using Photoshop CS2. I hope I've explained it ok.
