If you want to learn how to use graphics programs, particularly those made by Adobe you will probably want to learn how to Photoshop a picture. With even basic experience with the program, you can quickly learn how to do this, and you will find that it is not only easy but fun! Here are some tips on how to Photoshop a picture.
- Open a picture you want to Photoshop. Open Adobe Photoshop and then select your picture. You will also want to open a second one as well in order to Photoshop one of the images.
- Decide which photo will be the main one. You should know which picture you want to use to cut something out or add something in. This is essential when you are Photoshopping a picture.
- Cut something or someone out of your secondary photo. Select the "Lasso" tool in the left hand panel in Photoshop. Click on a point in the picture and go around the object or person you want to cut out, making sure not to move your finger off of the left mouse while you work.
- Copy and paste the cutout. Go to "Edit" and choose "Copy." Next, go back to the main picture, go to "Edit" again, but this time, select "Paste" to paste the object or person you cut out of the other picture.
- Move the object or person. Click on the portion you just pasted into the picture. Move it to where you want it to appear in the photo. This is essentially how to Photoshop a picture.
- Click the "Eraser" tool. You will want to erase the background area on the cutout you pasted. Go around the object or person to smooth it over, erasing it. This will make it look more real, as though it belongs in the picture. A truly good Photoshopped picture looks like it is not a fake.
- Save your new image. Go to "File" and choose "Save For Web and Devices." Give your Photoshopped picture a new name so that you don't lose the original image you worked with.
