Picsart HD Manipulation Tutorial
I already created the screen’s shape into which we’ll place our subject and its background later. Before we begin, if you’re not already a subscriber to Sony Jackson, click that “Subscribe” button to let you know as soon as I upload new Photoshop tutorials. The first step is to separate our subject from the background by making a selection around our subject.
If you’re or later, I’ll show you what to do in a moment. If you’re using an earlier version, open the Quick Selection Tool. Drag the tool inside your subject to select it. To remove areas of the selection, press and hold Alt or Option as you drag over those areas. Picsart HD Manipulation Tutorial
For versions or later, click the “Select Subject” button, which does a pretty good job of selecting your subject automatically. To check it, press “Q” to see it as a quick mask. Picsart HD Manipulation Tutorial
The “Select Subject” feature isn’t perfect, so you may have to go in and finesse the parts of your subject that will be popping out of the phone’s screen. To do this, press “Q” again to revert the quick mask back into a selection and go back in to finesse any edges it may have missed. To finesse soft or feathery edges like hair, click the Select and Mask button on versions and later, or go to Select and Select and Mask.
On earlier versions, click Refine Edge. If you prefer to use Refine Edge on later versions, Shift-click “Select and Mask”. I did in-depth tutorials on both of these filters, so if you want to watch them, I provided their links, as well. Check “Smart Radius”, which detects smooth and hard edges. To adjust the size of your brush, make sure the Caps Lock key is off and press the left or right bracket key on your keyboard.
Brush along the edge of soft or feathery areas. Output it to a Layer Mask. To place it onto the Smart Phone, press “v” to open your Move Tool and drag it onto the tab of the Smart Phone. Without releasing your mouse or pen, drag it down and release. Position your subject. To resize it, open the Transform Tool by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + T. Picsart HD Manipulation Tutorial
Go to a corner. If you’re using a version earlier than, press and hold Alt or Option + Shift as you drag it out or in. If you’re using a later version, just press Alt or Option as you drag it. Picsart HD Manipulation Tutorial
Then, press Enter or Return. Next, we’ll reveal the subject’s background inside the phone’s screen. Open your Channel’s panel. If you don’t see it, go to Window and Channels. Ctrl-click or Cmd-click the black and white screen shape to make a selection of it. Open back your Layers panel and make the layer mask active.
We’ll fill the selection of the phone’s screen with white, which you’ll see in the Layer Mask. If your foreground and background colors aren’t black and white respectively, press “D” on your keyboard. Since white is the background color, press Ctrl or Cmd + Delete. Deselect it by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + D. Picsart HD Manipulation Tutorial
Notice the background of the smart phone photo is out-of-focus including the area of the smart phone that’s further back. In this particular photo, the grass behind the child is also out-of-focus, which is what we want to blend it in. Picsart HD Manipulation Tutorial
If you’re using a different photo, whose background isn’t out-of-focus, you can blur that section of the phone screen by making your photo active and by opening the Blur Tool. Make sure its Strength is 100%. Then, brush over that area in the phone’s screen until its blurred enough. Lastly, we’ll cast a shadow from the subject.
We’ll make a new layer below the active layer by Ctrl-clicking or Cmd-clicking the New Layer icon. Open your Brush Tool and Brush Picker. We’ll adjust the size in a moment. Make its Hardness: 0% and its opacity and Flow 100%. Notice the direction of the shadow cast by the boy. We’ll extend his shadow onto the phone and the wood table.
Place your cursor to the right of his hand and adjust the size of your brush. Brush over the curved edge of the phone and brush over the table top. To fill in the middle of it, open your Paint Bucket Tool and click anywhere inside the brush strokes. To fill in the rest, open back your Brush Tool and brush over the empty areas.
Change its Blend Mode to multiply and reduce its opacity. For now, I’ll make it 38%. For this image, I’ll hide areas of the shadow that corresponds to the shadow in the photo. Click the Layer Mask icon to make a layer mask next to the shadow. Picsart HD Manipulation Tutorial
Invert your foreground and background colors by pressing “x” on your keyboard. brush over this part of the curved edge of the phone. I’ll reduce its opacity and brush over the table top a couple of times to reduce the shadow’s intensity. make the shadow active and reduce its opacity a bit more. Lastly, we’ll blur the shadow the further it is from the subject.
Before we do, we’ll convert the shadow with its layer mask into a Smart Object, so we can blur it non-destructively. To do this, click the icon at the upper right and click “Convert to Smart Object”. Go to Filter, Blur and Gaussian Blur. Blur it 20 pixels. Notice the Gaussian Blur filter has its own layer mask, which allows us to reveal back any part of the UN blurred shadow above it.
Make the Layer Mask active and open your Gradient Tool. Open the Gradient Picker and click the black and white preset. Make sure the linear gradient icon is active. Picsart HD Manipulation Tutorial
Place your cursor approximately here and drag your gradient tool to here Notice the shadow is blurrier the further it is from the subject. This is because the white area of the blur’s layer mask is revealing the blur, while the black area is concealing the blur.
