Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Shaping the mushroom and adding color, part of Creating Dreamscapes in Photoshop: Mushroom House.
- So in the last movie, we created all the paths to…select our mushrooms so what we're going to…do in this movie, is use those paths to select the…individual parts of the mushroom and…send them to their own layer.…That way we can go in there and manipulate them…to make them into our mushroom house.…So the first thing we'll do is take the cap.…So here's our little path right there.…So I'm going to select the path for the cap,…and I'm going to go in there and hit this…icon down here, which is to make it a selection, see?…Load path as a selection, I click on it and it's selected.…So now you can go up there to layers and…say gimme a new layer via copy.…
And when we go look at our layers,…there we see the layers, so we'll go…in there and call it the 'cap'.…So, go back to the background where…everything is, we'll go to our paths, and…we'll select the one for the stem, right there.…There's a little stem, so we'll go in there,…turn that into a selection, go up to layers,…and say gimme a new layer via copy.…And then finally, make sure we're back…
