Image Blending in Photoshop

Using photoshop to take an object out of 1 image, put it into another image and making the object transparent

1.) First step is to open the image of the object you want to use in another image.

2.) Select the “Magic Wand” tool from your tool bar, this button is in the first 4 icon’s (top or left) of your tool bar. All the tools on your tool bar with a little arrow in the bottom right corner means there’s multiple tools for that button. If you don’t see “Magic Wand” in your tool bar click your mouse and hold on “Quick Selection Tool” button to bring up a menu and select the “Magic Wand Tool”.

3.) Click the background color around the object you’re trying to select.

4.) Click the “Select” drop down menu, and click “Inverse”.

5.) Copy your selection.

6.) Open your other image in photoshop. (don’t use .gif images for this, you cannot create new layers in .gif images – save as a jpeg if yout using a .gif image)

7.) On the layers window you want to click the “Create New Layer” button.

8.) Select your new layer in the layers window and paste your selection.

9.) From your layers window you can control the “Opacity” and “Fill” of that layer.

10.) Resize and Move as needed.
