Creating a triptych for Assignment 7 (2016-17)

Assignment 7 for 2016-17 is “Triptych Photography”. The Club’s usual rules for assignments apply but for the avoidance of doubt:
1 Each triptych should be made from three of your images.
2 All the images used to create your triptychs should be new to the assignment – you should not use images, or parts of images, which have already been submitted to an another assignment.
3 You can submit up to three triptychs.
4 Each triptych can be on a subject and in a style of your choice.
5 The maximum width of the triptych is 1400 pixels. The maximum height of the triptych is 1050 pixels.
6 The triptych must be saved as a JPEG in sRGB colour space.

There is a lot of guidance on triptych photography on the web along with videos showing how to create a triptych using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. There are also many examples of triptychs on the web which you can browse for inspiration.

There are a number of ways of creating a triptych but, to get you started, we have produced a short video showing one simple method. The video is available here on YouTube or click on the image below.

Note: The video was made using Photoshop Elements 13 on a PC running Windows 10. Users of other versions of Elements or the full version of Photoshop should be able to follow the guidance in the video without too much difficulty.

It is entirely up to you whether you follow the method described. The video shows a triptych made from three images of the same size which are placed side by side. Your triptychs could be very different. As long as each triptych is made up from three images it is up to you how the triptych is created, how the images are sized, where they are placed and how they are presented.
