Cut Photoshop

A Quick and Easy Tutorial
In this tutorial you will learn all about blending in Adobe Photoshop. The ability to blend images in Photoshop is a crucial skill to have since it will allow you to put photographs together easily. It will
also help create new and more realistic images. For this tutorial though we are going to use one specific tool to help us blend an image together. We are going to use the Hue/Saturation feature available in all versions of Adobe Photoshop. Now, for the purpose of this tutorial, you will need to select two images: an object or a subject (a person, animal, etc) and a background (any type of background will work: beaches, forests, cities, etc). The object will eventually end up going on the background, so whether the scene is realistic or surreal is up to your own imagination.

First what you will need to do is cut the object out from its original background. To do this, go to the lasso tool on the vertical menu bar. Now select around the entire image, make sure you get all the details and do not cut out any areas yet.

Once the subject is selected, you will need to paste it on the new background. Go to Edit>Copy. Then while you're at the new background, select Edit>Paste. The subject should now be on the new background.

Now what we need to do is adjust the Hue and Saturation of both the new images so that the blend better.

Next, go to the layer with the subject on and adjust the Saturation slider by going to: Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation. You can also adjust the Hue slider for a cool, colored effect. The lower the Hue slider, the less color the image has.

Then select the background layer and repeat the previous step. The purpose of this part is to blend it well with the new subject. You can again try a neat effect with the Hue/Saturation sliders. If you make the Hue/Saturation of the two layers different, you can achieve a surreal effect. If you would also like to, you can place even more objects on the background. With Photoshop the possibilities are endless.

Make sure you save what you created and also make sure you save your two original images as well.

And there you have it, a neat way to create and blend new images!
