The next lesson we'll learn to represent the sky with a great number of
clouds on it, correct the colors of the picture and imitate the motion
of the object and scratch on the picture.
Open in a new window the picture of a girl: File - Open
Copy the layer by moving it on the new layer's icon in the Layers
window. Erase the previous layer (using the recycler's icon in the same window). Mark out the background after that (Polygonal Lasso Tool
) and erase it with the corresponding button on the keyboard.
Increase now the sizes of the working space with the Crop Tool
and insert the picture of a tree on a new layer, placed under the girl's layer.
We have to open this picture in a new window (ctrl+o), mark it and make a copy of it: Edit - Copy
(ctrl+c). Get back after that to the previous window and insert it on a new layer: Edit - Paste
(ctrl+v). Make the corrections on the tree's sizes, applying the next command: Edit - Free Transform
Now we must insert under the tree's layer the picture of the sky.
Create out of the sky's layer a mask with next combination: Layer - Add Layer Mask - Reveal All
. Select after that the Brush Tool
with smooth edges and make the tree visible form the previous layer.
Apply this command now: Layer - Remove Layer Mask - Apply
. Insert on a new layer the picture of a cloud. Select the Magic Wand Tool
to mark out and erase the sky's zones. Choose the Eraser Tool
with smooth edges to correct the cloud's bounds.
Insert on a new layer the picture of a new cloud:
Separate it from of the sky, applying the same instrument used before and make a copy of the layer. Turn the copy horizontally: Edit - Flip Horizontal
, then place both these layer on both girl's lateral sides.
Create out of the layer a mask (Reveal All
). Select the Eraser Tool
to delete the sharp lines of these clouds.
Insert the same way one more cloud in the upper corner, using this option: Edit - Flip Vertical
now making the corrections on the picture's colors. As a result we must
have the same coloring gamma. At the beginning we need to dark out a
little the sky on the tree's layer, selecting the next command: Image - Adjustments - Selective Color
Then merge down this layer and the sky's layer: Layer - Merge Down
(ctrl+e). Correct the colors by using the option that you see: Image - Adjustments - Curves
Pass to the girl's layer and make her coiffure livelier by adding several locks on the hair, selecting the Stamp Tool
, like a brush.
