Photoshop Tutorial - Move Elements to Another Image

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: In this video, Mahalo's Photoshop expert Justin Zagri demonstrates how to move elements, such as a masked and isolated cityscape, to another image. Move Elements to Another Image --------------------------------------------------------------------- When you've finished masking and isolating your cityscape, you're going to want to move it over into your movie poster and take the steps needed to integrate it. Begin by grabbing to Path Selection Tool. You want to make sure it's the Path Selection Tool because you're going to be combining your paths. Start at the outer most lower left corner, click and drag to the farthest upper right corner of your image. Be sure to include everything you wish to grab and leave no point unselected. Once everything is selected, press Combine in the top options panel to combine the points of your masks into one selection. Press V to be able to click and drag your selection over to the movie poster file. Now that you have the cityscape in your poster, you're going to want to isolate a part of that image and create a new layer. In the tutorial, Justin isolates the mountains. Select the Polygonal Lasso Tool from the left side tool bar. Make sure the Background layer is selected. Begin at one end of the part you wish to isolate and work your way with the Lasso along the edge of the object that will end up becoming a new layer. When you're finished, bring the Lasso back to its starting point and combine the selection when the circle appears. Once the selection is combined, right-click on it and choose Layer via Copy. Now that you have the selection on a new layer, press V and select the Cityscape layer and move it up into your image. Press Ctrl+T (Command+T for Mac) to Transform the cityscape and make it smaller (or whatever you need to do to make it fit on your movie poster). Once your cityscape is place, move its layer below the layer you copied earlier to move it behind the selection. Read more by visiting our page at:
