Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Making a castle on an island, part of Creating Dreamscapes in Photoshop: 1.
We need to add our little island with our castle on it.…So let's go see what we have.…I have some images back here, and there's a picture from one of my hiking trips, in fact.…There I am with my nephew Chris.…Now why am I using this shot? Right there. This is going to be a perfect island for what…we need, right there. I need to isolate these rocks.…Now I'm going to do it very quickly because I have an Alpha Channel for it, right there.…Now if you want to learn about the Alpha Channels just refer to the movie on how and why to…create Alpha Channels, and it will explain to you, but I'm just going to go ahead and…use my Alpha Channel, load it, and then I'm going to take that and drag it into my scene right here.…
Now I had the layer of water selected because that's the last layer I worked on from before,…so it automatically fell on top of that, which is where I want it.…So I'm going to take it, I'm going to put it down here, right there in the middle of…the water, right there, that's where my island is going to be.…
