How to blend a subject into new background

I had lifted a subject from one background and place it on a new one, but I can't get the subject to blend into the new background. The edges around the person on the new background is not smooth or blended into the new background. How can I feather or blend the person into this new background.

Try selecting the pasted figure. Then select-modify and contract usually about 5 pixels. Then select-invert and apply a Gaussian blur to blur edges. Play with amount of contraction and also amount of Gausian blur to get your desired result. Hopes this helps.
