How do you add or change the background in an image. For example, you have a model standing in front of a white wall, how would you add a sunset or waterfall behind her, with out it looking fake?

sskelsey... First make a selection of the model, copy the selection to a new layer or create a mask of the selection. Copy/paste your new background into the model document then move the pasted layer below the model selection/mask.
