Create a new layer and Alt-click between the new layer and the flag layer. This will clip the new layer to the flag layer. This means that whatever we paint on the new layer will only be visible through the flag layer (the clipped layer). Change the blending mode of the new layer to Overlay and paint with a round soft brush at 40% Opacity with black over the black areas and with white over the already white areas. This step will boost the contrast of the flag and it will make it look better.

Open the resource “Male”. Make a selection of the person using the Quick Selection tool or if the results are not good you can use the Pen Tool to create a path around the person and then convert the path into a selection (Ctrl + Enter – create a selection from path, Ctrl + Shift + Enter – convert path to selection and add to existing selection, Ctrl + Alt + Enter – convert path to selection and substract from existing selection). Copy and paste the male person into our working document. Convert the pasted layer into a smart object and place it in the middle of the screen as indicated below.
