In tutorial we will transform some regular pictures into cool 3D photos and we will integrate them in a veridical scene. If you followed some of my previous tutorials you know that I am a big fan of channel masking techniques so we will use them in this tutorial too.

Open file “Office Poznan” in Photoshop. We will remove the background using some channel masking techniques. Choose Image > Calculations > and blend red and blue channel using overlay mode. Now we will raise the contrast between our black character and white background by using a curves adjustment. Choose Image > Adjustments > Curves and use the setting shown below.
Choose a soft brush and change it’s blend mode to overlay. Now select white as foreground color and paint with white in the areas shown below. Select the inside of our character by using the Pen tool (P) or the Lasso tool and fill the selection with black. Make another selection like shown below then press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert selection and fill it with white. Now press Ctr+I to invert the selection. We will use this alpha channel to select our character.
