    1. Hi Kristin,

      The easiest way to have control that would be to have your grouped character on their own layer. So your man on one layer and your woman on another. Then simply use the layers panel to drag the characters’ layer above or below the other character. Hope that helps! If you have any other questions at all, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

    1. Hi Sarah,

      You can use the warp tool to adjust the features and body part once you’ve reduced the height of the portrait. To do that, only reduce the height of the body and clothing without the facial features or hair – don’t do it too much, as the warp tool can only fix so much. Then move the facial features and hair back to the correct position – these should be unaffected by any reduction in height leaving you only with the body to adjust. Using the warp tool gently “tease” the areas of the body so that they look more natural, you may have to adjust the brush size continuously depending on the area you are working on. You’ll need to tease features until they look natural. Hope that helps!
