Mirror Effect Using Photoshop

The first thing you will need to do is upload the images to your computer. After that, you will need to open Photoshop and then access the images in it one by one. Once you have opened the first image, right-click on it and then click on the option that says ‘Duplicate Layer’ and then click on ‘OK’. At this point, you will have to drag the panel where the image is displayed and increase its size in order to create space for the mirror image under it. After that create a ‘New Guide’ by selecting the same from the menu option called ‘View’.

The value for ‘Orientation’ and ‘Position’ should be ‘Vertical’ and ‘50%’ respectively. Now, you should drag the main image to the left of the guide that has been created with the help of the ‘Move tool’. Now select the portion of the image that should be ‘mirrored’ and then place it into a new layer. Now, making sure that in the layers panel, the ‘Background copy’ option is selected, flip the duplicate layer by clicking on Transform> Flip Horizontal and then move the reversed image immediately below the original (must fit together perfectly).

To move the image, hold down the ‘Ctrl key’ on the keyboard while simultaneously pressing the left button of the mouse. Click on ‘Enter’ and then exit the Transform command for the changes to be effective. Apart from that, you will also need to click on the ‘View’ menu and then click on ‘Click Guides’ for removing the guide and getting the final image with mirror effect. The next step will be to save the image created on your computer. You can then access it and upload it to your website or social networking sites for creating innovative and appealing advertising campaigns.

Cutting Out Images Using Photoshop

You should start by opening a photo in Photoshop and examine the person or object that you want to cut out. You should select the object that you are cutting out. One of the best tools to use to make the selection is the Quick selection tool. For ideal results you should ensure that you select the entire object. You should note that it’s always better to select a lot of background than to miss a critical part of an object.

After making the selection, you should copy and paste it where you want. When you paste the new image will appear as a new layer above the background layer. To hide the layers you should click the Eye icon that is usually beside the background layer. Once the object is on its own layer you will be able to easily change the background to anything that you want.

If you want to remove the background of a photo without erasing any part of the object you should use the eraser tool. If there are missing elements in your photo you should use the clone stamp tool. You should Alt-click the area where you want to take a sample and then drag the tool over the missing elements of the photo.

You should fill in the missing edges using clone stamp tool. To do this you need to Alt-click the edge near the top of the photo and fill the area below it. If the edges aren’t clear after filling them you should use the eraser tool to clean it up.

If there are some elements of the photo that aren’t in good shape thus need to be reshaped you should use the liquefy filter. Once everything is in order you should resize the photo to your desired size. You can also wrap or transform it using the Transform options under the Edit menu.
