Take your photo on a plain background or green screen

Open your image in Photoshop

Select the Magic Wand on the left, ensuring the Magic Wand tool (A) is selected down the bottom.

Begin the selection process by holding the Magic Wand against your image then left click to select. If you over select you can either Cntl Z to undo the last selection or alternatively there is a subtraction button down the bottom which will allow you to undo a little bit at a time


Once your entire image has been selected choose the Background Eraser Tool and begin removing the background as below, revealing a transparent background

Unless you have done an absolutely amazing job with your Magic Wand you will probably have a few little areas that have not been erased. Personally I do these touch ups once I have added the new background to my image.

The next part it to select your background. Open File and select your image. I’ve chosen a jungle theme for my image. There are plenty of sights available that have free background images available to download

The next step is to select your edited image from the Photobin in the bottom left hand corner and place it as a new layer onto your chosen background. This is the stage now that I like to erase any of the bits that were missed with the Magic Wand.

Select the eraser tool, ensuring Eraser is selected in the bottom left hand corner and zoom right in on your image so you can tidy up your image. Adjust your brush size accordingly. I like to take the opacity down quite a lot and go over a section a couple of times rather than have a harsh erased line around the hair etc


Once you have done all your spot corrections with the eraser it’s time to move your image into place. Select Image, Resize, Scale and move the image layer into your chosen position, adjusting the size to fit the background image accordingly

Once you are happy with position, eraser corrections etc you need to merge the layers. Select Layer, Merge Visible. This now creates one layer.

Finish off your image with a Border, Frame and Text if required
