Photoshop for Digiscrappers - Clone to Blend

I've been posting every now and then some tips and tricks over at the ScrapArtist blog. I'm reposting some of them here. I am in no way a Photoshop expert. It's all self-study. All of the tips and tricks I've shared are all related to help us digiscrappers.

Hope you’re all having a beautiful weekend. I have a quick and easy trick for blending a picture to a background paper using the Clone Stamp Tool.

1. Click on the clone stamp tool and choose a brush.

The key to this trick is finding the right brush to use. You want a brush that has some texture instead of a solid, hard one. For today, I am using a chalk brush from Nancie’s Digital Distressing Kit.

2. On your photo, position your brush on the part you want to blend into your paper. Press ALT and click. You should have seen the brush change to a target.

3. Create a new layer on your paper and click. Your photo should now appear.

Hope you enjoyed today’s little trick.

Have a good day!
