Moving and changing the pixels in a selection

Now you’ll move the globe to the upper right area of the book image. Then, you’ll do a completely different kind of change by altering the color of the globe for a dramatic effect.

Before you begin, make sure that the globe is still selected. If it is not, reselect it, following the procedure in the previous topic. (See “Selecting from a center point” on page 131.)

1.
Choose View > Fit On Screen to adjust the magnification so that the entire image fits within the image window.

2.
In the toolbox, select the Move tool ().

3.
Position the pointer within the globe selection. The pointer becomes an arrow with a pair of scissors (), to indicate that dragging the selection will cut it from its present location and move it to the new location.

4.
Drag the globe over the book image to the right of center. If you want to adjust the position after you stop dragging, simply start dragging again. The globe remains selected throughout the process.

5.
Choose Image > Adjustments > Invert.

The colors making up the globe are inverted, so that now it is effectively a color negative of itself.

6.
Leaving the globe selected, choose File > Save to save your work.
