this was the original background image including the shadow:
this is the image of a tshirt:
this is the image of the man at the beach:
this is my final image
First, I watched the Photoshop CS5 Top 5-
The first video in this section is the "Common Sense Enhancements", I watched these to alter a picture that orignially had a shadow in it...
- In order to remove the shadow I used the the rectangular marquee tool to create a box around it, and then pressed the delete button. A box then comes up with a "content aware" option, if you click ok, then photoshop will apply the background around the shadow to the place where the shadow was and it will dissapear.
-I then used the magnetic lasso tool to cut and paste an image of a man using a metal detector that I took at the beach onto the first image three times.
-Then, using the layers menu on the right side of the screen, I changed the opacity in each of the layers so it looks like the man is gradually appearing.
-I then put in a a text box a phrase saying "what are you looking for?", then, I used the rectangle tool to draw a box around it, and then on the right hand side on the layers menu, moved this layer with the text and box to #1.
-then, i reduced the fill opacity on the text box to 0% so that i could see the text in the box.
-then, i clicked on the gray box in the layer menu to turn off the vector mask.
-then, i went down to the bottom of the layer menu, and pressed the red fx button, and went to the "stroke" menu.
-I then played with effects on the stroke menu, to create a cool-loking box around the text.
-I then selected an image from an obey t-shirt i have to using the magnetic lasso tool and copy paste. I went to the menu bar at the top of the screen and chose layer, arrange, send to back to put it behind my words. I also chose to emboss and engrave it on the fx menu, but you can't really tell.
