The next lesson we'll
learn to combine the objects and people situated on different pictures,
create the effect of rainbow and old picture, use the layers, layers'
masks and work with the colors and blurring filters.
For the beginning we have to open in a new window the photo of a sitting girl: File - Open
Mark out the girl's figure, selecting firstly the Polygonal Lasso Tool
Make a copy of the marked figure: Edit - Copy
(ctrl+c) and insert it on a new layer: Edit - Paste
(ctrl+v) or simply select the next combination of buttons: ctrl+j. Erase the previous layer: Layer - Delete - Layer
. After that we have to enlarge the image, using the Crop Tool
. Open in a new window the picture of a chair.
Mark it out with Rectangular Marquee Tool
make a copy of it (ctrl+c) and get back to the girl's file to insert it
on a new layer (ctrl+v). Place it under the girl's layer and make the
corrections of the size, using the combination Edit - Free Transform
(ctrl+t). Then create a new layer: Layer - New - Layer
and place it under all the previous layers. The last one should be painted in black color with Paint Bucket Tool
Open now the picture of a window (ctrl+o).
Insert it above the background's layer. Because the picture is situated on a black background, it may be marked out with Rectangular Marquee Tool
and not with Polygonal Lasso Tool
we have to open in a new window the picture of tile floor, looking like
a chess table. It maybe drawn for yourself also with Rectangular Tool
and clicking on the shift button, then distorting it with Edit - Transform - Perspective
and Edit - Free Transform
it also on a new layer, above the window's layer. Don't forget to make
the necessary corrections on its size and the distort level (ctrl+t).
When making the floor looking older than it is, we have to insert on a new layer a kind of texture, like that one shown below:
Group out this layer with that one the floor is situated on: Layer - Create Clipping Mask
(ctrl+g). Distort the texture's perspective to make it look exactly like that one of the floor. Use the next selection: Edit - Transform - Perspective
Change the layer's type on Multiply
The texture we have looks too dimly, that is why we'll change a little its color with Image - Adjustments - Selective Color
Now we have to change also the brightness and the contrast, applying Image - Adjustments - Levels
I've decided to make look old the chair too. We have to copy in this case the texture's layer: Layer - Duplicate Layer
(ctrl+j) and combine the copy with the layer the chair is situated on (ctrl+g).
Create after that the layer's mask: Layer - Add Layer Mask - Reveal All
, using the Gradient Tool
of black color and hide the upper part of the layer.
Apply also this command: Layer - Remove Layer Mask - Apply
and make the layer look brighter a little, using Image - Adjustments - Curves
Combine the texture's layer and the chair's one: Layer - Merge Down
(ctrl+e) with the texture and the tile, by two. We have to insert above
the chair's layer the picture having pictured the water on it:
Mark out the chair now, clicking on its layer, having pressed in the same time the ctrl button. Select the Polygonal Lasso Tool
to erase the markings from the chair's legs to have the impression that
a part of the legs is situated in the water. Erase the marked zone with
the delete button on the keyboard:
Move off the marking: Select - Deselect
(ctrl+d) and change the water's color with the next selections: Image - Adjustments - Hue/Saturation
(ctrl+u) and Image - Adjustments - Selective Color
Change the layer's type on Screen
firstly, then on the Normal
again. Using the Gradient Tool
and the layer's mask, hide a big part of the water:
We should have Blending Mode Normal
Continue by processing the girl's layer. Make use of the Clone Stamp Tool
to make the girl's hair look livelier:
Then we have to correct the layer's colors (Selective Color
