Hi. This tutorial is based on using a layer mask to merge two images. Today, I will make this dinosaur appear on this beach, just into the water. Layer masks are very simple to use, and also very useful! They work on a black – white – gray system. This tutorial will explain further.
Step 7) On that same layer add a layer mask by going to Layer>Layer Masks>Hide All. Change the charcoal to a large smudge or smear brush and paint on the white mask to reveal the new charcoal effect.
Now $400.00 in a year for a stock photo is hardly what one would call spectacular, hardly worth mentioning, I suppose. But the cool thing about this image earning that amount over the last year is that I created this image in 1990! This image was, I believe, the first stock photo I ever created in Photoshop.
You can still create Datat Masking Software in the old fashioned way but this new panel is much more powerful and will make learning masking easier for new users of Photoshop. I give this new feature 8 out of 10.
Use that old toothbrush as a cleaning tool that can get to small spaces that you can’t reach, such as the corners in your kitchen cabinets. What’s more, it will save wear and tear on your fingernails.
Next, select the brush tool. Use the drop-down menu to select the round brush with the feathered edge. Also, select a brush size with a diameter that is slightly longer than the height of the background image. Click here to learn more about the brush tool.
So in conclusion, Photoshop CS4 introduces some very new and exciting features such as fluid canvas rotation and content-aware scaling, a few new panels such as Mask Panel and Adjustments panel which help to improve your workflow, and a whole bunch of enhancements to existing features.
