How to merge two photos with Lightroom and Photoshop

I've been posting photography tutorials lately using Instagram Stories. The problem is that they only last 24 hours before they expire... until now! My plan is to re-upload my most popular stories here so they can be enjoyed longer. This first video covers how to merge two photos together to isolate a bus on the road using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Hope you find it useful! Feel free to leave questions and feedback in the comments. Finished photo: To catch my stories in real time, follow me on Instagram at
