First you have to find a background that you want to see on the pictures. If the background is found, open it and open the original photo. In most graphics and text editors, these documents are opened in the menu "File" you click "Open" (Ctrl+O).
Each image will open in a separate window. The last file (the original photo with a person or object) will be active. Click in the menu "Select" – "All" and then in "Edit" – "Copy". Photo in memory – unable to close it.
Paste the copied photo into the document. To do this, in top menu select "Edit" and then "Paste". You can use hot keys – Ctrl+V. Now the top layer with the silhouette is located above the layer with the selected background. If the size of the pictures do not match, scroll to the top of the photo ("Select – All") and transform it to the desired size ("Edit" "Free transform"). As a result the top photo completely cover the photo with the background.
Select the eraser, medium size and start to erase the background of the top layer. As erasing the bottom layer will come through the top. When the whole background on the photo on top is removed, you will see a silhouette or object on the new background.
Using this technique it is quite easy to replace only part of the background or combine both background. To do this, first adjust the settings of the eraser tool: opacity, and the pressure force must be in the range of 10-15%. Start erasing the background. Now the background will be removed not all at once, but gradually become thinner, more transparent. If both pictures have roughly the same environment-the background (greens, beach and sea, city etc.) you can achieve very interesting results. In the same way, it is possible to connect more than two backgrounds.
Note. To understand the idea of layers in Photoshop, imagine a stack of tracing paper. On each sheet there is a part of the image. The tracing paper is very thin and transparent, allowing you to see the entire image, which is composed of these pieces. Moreover, any sheet can be removed from the stack, independently of the others, or insert a new one.
Advice 2: How to change photo background in photoshop
Features of the program Photoshop, part of visual changes truly limitless. If desired, any of your friends in five minutes to send to the moon or in a cage with a tiger. On photos, of course. However, not everyone knows exactly how it can be done. Today, this will be discussed in the instructions.
Select a photo background which you want to change and choose a new suitable background.
Open the photo which we will change background. It is best if the photo is large and of good quality, because we cut part of photography, but on a small image of poor quality will make it much more difficult.
Take a tool called the "Pen tool" (the pen). On the top of the control panel, select the pen icon on a backgroundof squares with dots.
Now set the first point using the tool somewhere on the outline of the shape you want to cut. Then, very carefully, moving along the contour, put on it points one after the other. To be more accurate, zoom the image. The more accurately you depict the contour points, the better will the result. It may take some time, but be patient.
Pay special attention to the hair. Generally, if you try to cut the image of a man with a very lush and shaggy hair, it is likely that you will succeed too well – this is a job for professionals.
When you fully outline the outline, return to the point from where you started – line should be closed and the points will disappear.
Now click on the picture, right-click, select "Make selection". Your image will be inside the dotted selection.
Now leave for a while this image and open the one that will serve as the new backgroundω for the image. After that, open both Windows and drag with the tool "Move tool" (black arrow) selected image to the new background.
If the images do not match in size, then adjust them to each other and position the selection in the picture as you want.
Most of the work we have done, but it is clear that now our picture looks not too realistic. First of all, treat in some places the edges of the image with a soft eraser. Perhaps, somewhere, will need to work with the tools "Burn tool" and "Blur".
So the image did not seem artificial, add, if necessary, the shadows. In this case we will add shadows under people's feet. To do this, create another new layer ("Layer" – "New layer" and under the feet with a soft brush with high opacity draw blackout.
Now to give the most realistic work on brightness, contrast and color balance.
Now merge all layers. This can be done by Ctrl+E or Layer" - "Merge down".
Save the image in your desired folder and enjoy the result!
Pick the image, which is roughly equivalent in size and quality, otherwise the result may be very unrealistic. Try to opt for the use of photographs of poor quality.
