Really helpful! I'm starting to do matte paintings and this is really useful.

For the photos, what's the minimum resolution that you recommend?

Thanks.

Bigger = better.
I suggest you to use at least 1kx1k pixel stock images. That's what I do.

Can you explain to me how "digital matte painting" is any different than "photomanipulation"?

Is it just a new term for the same thing?

I just recently discovered what matte painting was, and man does it look awesome! (well, aside from things like removing power lines and such XD)

Nice tutorial

This tutorial is just what I was looking for! The only minor point of critique is that it isn't easy to read - a darker shade of grey for the background would help. :)
Thanks for the info and the inspiration!

Just wish I could found some more advanced matte paint tech tricks here.. but it seems you have the onliest tutorial about matte painting here on dA :-)

I just like to do more landscape jungle matte things. I come over the Tutorial CDs [link] from ~dylancole on his homepage which seem very useful
