photo masking tutorial

I'm putting a preppy sign picture that Brandy gave me as a gift inside of the brush just for tutorial purposes You can put any picture inside of one of these. They're really fun to use with simple signs and collage headers/collage header layouts.

Example of what you'll be doing:


The Steps

1. Open the photo you want to put inside of the brush. Define it as a pattern.

2. Place the brush you want to use on whatever you're using it on. I'm using this brush.


3. Right click on the layer and click "Blending Options". Click "Pattern Overlay". Using the pattern you defined in step 1.

4. Hover over the picture of the brush with your pattern. You will notice you see the move tool.


5. Move the picture around where you think it looks best at inside of the brush. You're done!
