Step 7

Carefully plot around the face and shoulders contours ignoring the hair. Make a dome shape for her head where it is cropped and continue the shape of her shoulders as well. With the Pen Tool (P) selected, press Cmd/Ctrl key and drag individual points to adjust the shape of your path.


Step 8

Next we will apply this path to a folder that will contain all our layers for textures, colors, effects pertaining to the woman's face and body. Create a New Folder(1). Load the woman's path as a Selection (2). Add a Layer Mask to the New Folder (3).


Step 9

Move both the “poster edge” and the “black & white” layers into the folder to view the result. You may need to refine the mask to include the nice black outline of her face. To do so use a small soft round brush and paint over the folder's mask. All New Layers that we'll be creating in the next few steps should be created inside this folder.
