today i learned how to use the lasso tool and moved my girl to this place and now ill scale position and rotate her. ill do that by selecting the free transform witch is cmd+ T. then ill change her width to 32 and selecting the icon between width and height makes them the same then ill change the angle value to 1.5 and ill change the x value to 1574 and the y value to 1438. now ill use the lasso tool to make a shadow. ill trace the shadow i want with the lasso tool. now I’m going to change the color of the clouds to they match the red colored mars by selecting the clouds layer then elect fx icon then select color overlay and change the color to hue and the select the color panel and change the hue value to 355 the saturation to 40 and the brightness to 100.
combining the best of the selection tools:
first ill select the magic wand tool then ill reset the tools and ill use the magic wand tool to select the background and use the magnetic lasso to deselect what was selected of the beak the neck and wing.
introducing the quick mask mode:
ill select the edit in quick mask mode tool i t has a keyboard shortcut of q.then ill go to the window menu and select the channels command to bring up the channels menu.il turn th rag off and use the bus tool to take the red i don’t need away.then ill turn the rib back on and switch back from edit in quick mode
the fastest way to save a selection:
you’ll select the channels panel then select save as channel at the bottom right of the screen, or to name the channel as i make it ill alt click on the icon and name it rough selection. then ill go to the file menu and select save command and then photoshop will ask me to save as a different command so ill change to tiff file and rename it rough selection
Painting adjustments with the brush tool:
ill command click on the thumbnail to select part of my image.then ill turn off the quick mask and use the magnetic lasso to select part of the wing i don’t want or need.
