Floral Tiger Photo Manipulation Tutorial
Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire. In this Photoshop tutorial we will learn how to create nature scene of tiger. First we create a blank file and place leaves. Then added tiger and blended it with background.
