Apply the image, add new layer (Layer > New > Layer or Shift+Ctrl+N) now go to Image/Apply image. Don’t change anything, just click OK.

Now sharp the image, go to Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen more.

  1. so, for those who don't get the line-
    “Apply a Roots photo layer to the Horse layer
    To do this, press and hold Ctrl/Cmd and point your cursor above the red line. You will see an icon – click on it.”
    I'm using CS6 and for rest of you guys are not using this version no problem the method I've used compatible with all versions.
    1)take lasso tool(i took polygonal lasso)
    2)selection around the horse pic because we want enter the root image into the horse image.
    3)take the root image file>open
    4)CTRL/CMD +A to select the whole root image then CTRL/CMD+C to copy
    5)edit option>paste special>paste into
    6)the root image will be entered into the horse image as based on your selection

  2. I don't get this step:

    "Apply a Roots photo layer to the Horse layer
    To do this, press and hold Ctrl/Cmd and point your cursor above the red line. You will see an icon – click on it."

    I don't see an icon show up and I am using CS6, as shown in the tutorial. If the short cut method does not work, what is the manual process .

  3. I agree! haven't seen these type for a while! But I am happy to see different artists sharing their techniques and knowledge, its becoming more and more open! I appreciate every bit of it! thanks to pstutorials for grabbing this one! cheers to Markiw!
