Hello!

I want to apologise in advance for any english mistakes since this is not my first language. I am also quite new at using Photoshop.

 

I have two pictures. On picture #1 I have the left halves of 30 photos that have been cut in two. On picture #2, I have the right halves of the same 30 photos. I want to save a a file of each complete photo (the two halves side by side). Is there any quick way to do that?
I have no idea if my question is clear. Basically, I am looking for a way to put two pictures side by side that lets me move each picture to compare different places of each picture. A bit like what "Window -> Arrange -> 2-up vertical" does but in the same tab and not 2 different ones, so that I can crop and save the 30 pairs.

I tried to put a layer mask on picture #1 to blend out the space next to a photo and move picture #2 as to have the second half of the photo next to the first one, which did exctly what I wanted, but then I would have to change the layer mask for each of the 29 other photos (since the layer mask moves with the layer when I try to put different spots side-by-side). Since I need to do this with more than 2 pictures it would be very time consuming to manually chnage the layer mask for each pair. Is there a faster or better solution?

 

If my question isn't clear or if you need more details do not hesitate to tell me.

 

Thank you for your help.

Mathis

Hey, it's me again.So I just found out that I can unlink the layer mask and the layer by clicking the little chain icon in the layers tab. By doing this I can creaty a layer mask that stays in place even when I move ther two layers that I want to compare, which seems to be what I was looking for.I do not see a way to edit or delete my post, so I hope this can save some time to someone who runs into the same issue as me and finds this. Have a nice day.
