3- Twenty Photoshop Composition Overlay files featuring Alain's photographs
Each file features composition lines indicating exactly how each photograph is composed. The photograph and composition lines are located on separate layers that can be turned on or off independently to show just the photograph, just the composition lines, or both. 10 different composition styles are featured in this manner, for both horizontal and vertical compositions. Four of Alain's photographs are provided on each Mask file together with a blank layer on which you can import your own photographs.

Square or panoramic? The choice is yours and so is the visualization of which option you like best.

5- Blank Composition Overlay files in which you can import your own photographs
Each Blank composition File features the composition lines for each of 20 different composition styles, in both vertical and Horizontal formats. These composition lines appear on top of your photographs after you paste it in allowing you to immediately see if your photograph match this specific composition. If not you can import the same photograph into a different composition overlay file and see if it matches your image better.
