Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Masking the subject into the scene, part of Photoshop for Photographers: Compositing.
Here we're going to look at another imaginative composite project.…And in this project we'll be combining two different photographs together;…this photograph of this little toy sailboat and then also this picture of the subject.…And what I want to do here's is I want to create kind of a vintage scene, so…we're going to need to blend the subject into this environment and then also…modify the color and tone, so that this project really works.…All right, well let's click in the top layer and then click and drag this layer…around to see where we could position it.…To see how this could fit in, go ahead and decrease the Opacity and decrease…Opacity so you can see through it but also so that you can kind of imagine how…the subject will fit into the scene.…
In my case it looks like I need to rotate this, so press Command+T on a Mac…or Ctrl+T on Windows, then go ahead and click and drag on one of those corner points.…And here I'm just looking to try to imagine how we're going to have her sitting…
