Step three- Paint sky and photograph

4. Now go back to your black and white image, click layer/duplicate layer/okay

5. go to the sky painting image and click select/all ……. then click edit/copy

6. now return to the blk and wht photo of your artist and click edit paste….this will paste the painted sky onto your black and white photo.

7.Use the move tool to stretch it and move it to where you want it.

8. Adjust the opacity to taste, to make it see through enough to know where you want to erase

9. then just use the eraser tool to erase around your artist and any other part you don’t want the painting to show, flatten image, and VOILA!!

Email me your creative results or questions and I will post everyone’s photos on my next blog!! Natty241@hotmail.com

  1. Love that you gave instructions! I do not have photoshop at home, but they installed in on my computer at school. Unfortunately I never had the time to sit and play with it. So I love your little tutorial, and it may take me a while but I'd like to give something like this as a try, kind of like a homework assignment. Just give me a little time to hand it in...

  13. Yes, you can convert the photo into black-and-white in Photoshop. When I was first teaching myself Photoshop I thought of the "layers" feature like this: each item that is on a separate layer is on its own sheet of paper, kind of like a flip book. The topmost layer is at the top of your paper pile and each layer beneath it is like another "page". Now, if you start each layer as a *transparent* layer (meaning it has no solid background), you can then think of each item/image/element as being mounted onto a clear piece of plastic. Photoshop does take quite a while to learn...I started in 1994 and am, well, always still learning, but that's the joy of it...fiddle, play, discover!

  15. Thank you very much for sharing this! I have had PSE for a couple of years now without knowing how to use it. Everything worked exactly as you instructed, however, I am getting lines from one of the images bleeding through. How do I correct this?
