Create a Scene with Popup Photos in Photoshop
These steps sound complicated but are very simple to do. I will not repeat them for every frame, instead I will be referring to step 20. You can also apply this steps to other pictures in order to obtain the 3D effect.

Step 21

Open file "Open Landscape 2. We will use channel to make a selection of the tree. If we do a "channel walk"( take a look at each of the red, green and blue channels ) we notice that the blue channel has the most contrast between tree and sky. Choose Image > Calculations and use the settings shown below. Press Ctrl+M to open curves adjustment window and use the settings shown below. Now using the lasso tool make a selection of the tree then press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert the selection. Fill the selection with white. Use a white brush tool to carefully remove the 2 black spots. Press Ctrl+I to invert ( remember that in a channel mask white reveals, black conceals) and Ctrl+Click the alpha channel to load the selection. Go to the RGB composite view by pressing Ctrl+2 then press Ctrl+J to make a new layer from the selection.
