Once you're done, open "Dragon Stock T1P1". This stock image is a PNG file so when it opens you'd see four dragons on a transparent background, which means you, can just select a dragon and move it to our canvas. Now, to begin, activate the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L). See image below:

  • Brightness: -30
  • Contrast: -50
The result should be like this:
