Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the castle, part of Creating Dreamscapes in Photoshop: 1.
Here we see the castle that's going to be floating in the sky.…It's a cloudy overcast day and it's winter time.…So you notice that all the trees are now dormant.…We need to bring those trees to life and take this castle and bring it to life.…Now the first thing we need to do is to separate this castle from the background.…Now I have created an alpha channel for that purpose.…The chapter on creating alpha channels will show you exactly how this alpha channel is…created, but there is my alpha channel.…So what I am going to do is I am going to go over here and say Load Selection.…So right now it knows that that other file is open back there. See?…It knows that as being an alpha channel so it's bringing that one in.…
So I am going to click OK and my castle is selected.…Plus parts of the ground underneath it.…So I am going to go in there and send this to a new Layer Via Cut.…We are going to actually take the background and throw it away. We don't need it.…And I am going to go in there and call this the Castle.…
