Create a new layer and with the same yellow color but a round soft brush at 10% Opacity paint some glow around the window. Hint: When you are finished with a specific portion of the document you are working on (like we are finished with our house) it is a good idea to select all the layers related to that section/object and group them. Shift –click on each layer to select multiple layers and press Ctrl + G to group them. Give the group a descriptive name (in our case “House”).

Open the file Dead Tree 1. Copy and paste the tree into our scene (the trees are already precut so a simple Ctrl + A will select them). Add a layer mask and mask the bottom of the tree. Place one tree on the left side of our scene, near the horizon. Duplicate it two times and place the other two trees as shown below.

  1. I must say you suck. I'm sorry but after downloading all the files you start with: "Create a new document 2000×1565. Open the file sky and copy all by pressing Ctrl + A. Copy with Ctrl + C, go back to our document and paste with Ctrl + V. Place the sky as shown below" Wtf does that even mean? I was ready to follow and try it but yeah... There is one file and you talk about copy all. Copy all with control A, Copy all with Control C? lol..

  2. What the hell man, That all was an effect and reposition ?
    And it all starts from nothing ? man i think you're a genius ! fcking like it ! but, it's still hard to me, any other ways easier than this but the same results ?

  3. I would not use that house stock photo, nor any image from moonglowlily as she notoriously takes images from Google and calls them stock. She does not have permission to post those photos and by using them you are committing copyright infringement.
