Now, select all the layers we've made from Step 4 and group them (Ctrl/Cmd + G) and name the group to "Box".


Step 6: Add the Wanderer

In this step, we will be adding the woman who is staring and captivated by the box. To start, open "394 Look up" by WolfcatStock. We would need to create a selection area around this woman and for that we will need the Magnetic Lasso Tool.

Activate the Move tool (V) and drag this image to the canvas. Once on the canvas, rename this layer to "woman". Position it as shown on the image below:

Now, we would need to reduce the size of this woman so activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and resize it as shown on the image below:

Next, let's fix the brightness/contrast of our woman. To do that, first select the woman and then go to Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast:

Once it has opened, input the following:

  • Brightness: 22
  • Contrast: -12
  • Use Legacy: Check

Next, let's adjust the lightness of the image; to do that, select the "woman" layer and then go to Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation.

Once open, input the following:

  • Edit: Master
  • Hue: 0
  • Saturation: 0
  • Lightness: -30

Step 7: Add the Wanderer's Shadow

In this step, we will be adding the shadow of the wanderer. To do that, simply select the "woman" layer and duplicate it by pressing Ctrl/Cmd + J. Once duplicated, activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and right click on the canvas; click on "Flip Vertical".

The result:
