So here are the woods in and of them selves scary to me at least. But what is 00:00:08] scarier then woods, a cabin in the woods. So we're gonna go to the cabin image if you have it open already, if you're not just open that cabin, and as you see here I already have it selected. If you don't have it selected go to select all and the copy, press command or control C and then we don't need this image anymore. You can close it. Return to the woods and now command or control V to paste the uh cabin. If you get a mismatch profile in a dialog box as I have here let Photoshop go ahead and convert this for us, click OK and now the cabin will be compatible with this image. Now what we're gonna do is rename these layers. So I'm going to double click on layer one, where it says layer one, the words them selves and I'm gonna type cabin. I'm going to double click right here where it says background and I'm gonna rename that woods. Ok, let's return back to the cabin layer by clicking on it once, press command or control T on the keyboard, and let's scale the cabin up so that it fits the image a little bit more uh precisely and I'm gonna hold the uh spacebar down so I can just move everything while I'm still working with this tool and I'm gonna reposition the cabin right above this log like so and I'm gonna scale up just a little bit more and put it right about there and double click to accept that. Now what I want to do is drop the opacity down just to make sure that it's exactly where I want it to be and I can see the log right in front of it and I'm gonna put it right about there. Gonna increase the opacity again and this time we're gonna add a layer mask to the cabin. So let's go ahead and click this icon right here and with the layer mask we're gonna paint with black with a nice soft brush. So grab your brush and go to your menu here and choose something like let's see 100 pixels or 65 pixels and let's start painting away the background. We don't need the woods in this particular image. Also I'm gonna try to keep some of the uh the foreground of the woods uh in this image in this uh new image as well. So I'm going to not paint everything away, I'm gonna try to keep some of the, the grass and the uh debris in front of the cabin so that it blends in a little bit more realistically, instead of getting rid of everything and having the cabin sitting on nothing. So let's go ahead and continue to erase and if you want to get a uh smaller brush and clean up around the edges of the cabin feel free to do that. I'm gonna actually reduce the size of this brush a little bit and make it a hard brush and I'm gonna go in and clean up the edges right on the roof because we don't need that halo in this particular image. It's going to definitely scream out this is a composite and now what I want to do is while still on my layer mask I'm gonna grab the gradient tool and I'm simply going to, as you see here I have uh a foreground of transparent, I'm gonna go near the, the grass and I'm gonna just pull up a little tiny bit like this to get rid of some of that but still blend it in to this new image. And if you go too far don't forget you can always grab your brush and you can turn the color to white and then paint back some of those details if the gradient tool took too many out for you. So I'm going to just look up here and see where the uh the tool went a little too far and I'm gonna paint some of that away. So I'm gonna make sure I have my uh color selected and you have to switch back and forth between white and black to both get rid of detail and to pull the detail back in and the slowly but surely work back on the cabin until I can see everything that I want and there I'm bringing back the detail of the cabin and now this is ready for the next step of the tutorial. Once again I'm gonna switch to uh black and I'm gonna paint away some of this uh debris so I can bring that log back. There we go. Now the cabin actually looks like it belongs there. Just take you time and paint things away. Uh don't forget switch back and forth between white and black. Now what we're gonna do is work on the next part and start to change some of the colors of these layers so that everything looks a little bit more like a night time scene instead this nice bright cheery scene here.
