Now let’s add the umbrella guy in our scene. Open the file “Guy with umbrella” and copy/paste the man with the umbrella in our scene. Use the Free Transform tool to position him as shown below.
Make a selection of the umbrella with Rectangular Marquee Tool as shown below and create a copy of the selection by pressing Ctrl + J. You now have the cut umbrella on a new layer.
Resize the duplicated umbrella with Ctrl + T and place it as shown below – it will be barely visible because it is over the original umbrella but you should see it.
Go back to our guy layer and add a layer mask. Use the chalk brush to hide the big umbrella (paint with black over it). Now only the duplicated small umbrella layer is visible.
Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to select the umbrella stick (you should have the guy with the umbrella layer active – click on it to make it active – and not the small umbrella layer).
Now press Ctrl + J to make a duplicate of the umbrella stick selection you created at the previous step. Move this duplicated umbrella stick with the Move Tool (V) until it connects with the small umbrella above.
Group the duplicated stick and the duplicated umbrella layers under a new group (hold Ctrl and click on each layer – press Ctrl + G to group) and name this group “Umbrella”. We’ll come back to this group later in the tutorial.
Now go back to our original guy with the umbrella layer. In the layer mask use a round soft brush at 40% Opacity to paint with black over the region that sits underwater (the legs and a part of his bottom). This will give the impression that he is sitting in the water.
Let’s start color correcting and blending the guy with our scene. First create a Levels Adjustment Layer and use the settings shown below to darken. Clip this layer to the guy layer and use the layer mask to hide the section where the darkness is too much.
Add a Color Balance Adjustment Layer with the settings shown below and clip it to the guy layer to match his color with that of the environment.
