Lesson 6. Masks and Channels > Adding the extracted image as a layer

Adding the extracted image as a layer

It’s time to add the extracted image to the Egret image.

1.
With the image window of the Foxtail image active, use the Move tool () to drag the image to the right side of the Egret image. The foxtail is added as a new layer to the Egret image.

2.
Close the Foxtail.psd image window without saving your changes. The 06Start.psd is now the active file, and the new layer with the foxtail is selected.

3.
Zoom out so that the egret image covers only about half of the height of the image window.

4.
Choose Edit > Transform > Scale. Drag the resize handles, holding down Shift to constrain the proportions, until the foxtail is about two-thirds the original image height. Press Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac OS) to apply the scaling.
