Can anyone point me in the right direction to go about doing this? I was thinking using a clone tool, but I'm wondering if there's a better way. This is a compilation of four separate photos that I took for a friend's band on a white backdrop. How do I go about blending this together?

My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Here's my 5 minute attempt.

Just used the curve tool, made the white point onto the darkest part of the grey around them, used a mask to stop their foreheads from blowing out.

new layer, used a white brush to fill in any areas it missed.

Then unsharp mask .3 500%, opacity at around 70%

Sometimes the Extract Filter works well.

Use the Dodge tool with Highlights as the Range, and 100% as the Exposure. Works great:

Great stuff.

Had to set my exposure at 38 per cent and 25 for the drummer to get the fastest finish, another minute or two and it would have been spot on, I normally use the extract tool, but this was sooo much faster.
