Autumn Wallpaper - Photo Effects

 
In this tutorial we'll see how is it possible to create wallpapers by combining several pictures, we'll learn also several methods of correcting the colors, use the layers, the filters and see how to create unusual lightness effects.

First we need to open a new file of standard sizes wallpapers: File - New (ctrl+n).

Mark it out, using the Rectangular Marquee Tool and make a copy of it: Edit - Copy (ctrl+c). Get back to the earlier created file and insert it on a new layer: Edit - Paste (ctrl+v). Now we should correct the eye's parameters, selecting the next option: Edit - Free Transform (ctrl+t)

The layer containing the rests of the picture should be erased: Layer - Delete - Layer. We should copy also that part of the compass that is without its frame.

Distort the compass's perspective after that, making use of this command: Edit - Transform - Distort

The second layer must be placed above the eye (Distort, Free Transform) and then erase the unnecessary part by marking it firstly with Polygonal Lasso Tool. Before marking that part we could minimize the layer's Opacity till 0%, and then turn it back on 100%. We should blur out the dial plate's edges too, selecting the Blur Tool.
