Change the pickle jar to a flask

I've got a challenge for yall. This is a photo that I took for an election. I wanted to be able to change the pickle jar that I have in my hand to something like a flask and I wanted to incorporate my slogan "I have the winning formula" and I want to change the background, but I would like to stress the need for the use of green in the design somehow. Now I know I'm not an administrator so I dont want to step on anyones toes. but yall are real talented and I've been trying to do this for a while.

Re: Change the pickle jar to a flask

Find a stock photo of a flask or beaker and extract it from it's background. Copy/paste the extraction into your original photo, resize, rotate etc with the free transform tool. Extract the label if you need it from the original and put it on a layer of its own above the flask. Use the clone tool to clone out the excess coat areas and clean up around the flask. Duplicate the flask and fill the lower copy with black then on the upper copy add a mask and paint away the upper portion of the flask so that the black copy below shows through. Use a low transparency brush to do this so you still maintain a look of glass. Add a highlight on the flask if you like.

I did this in about 10 minutes.

Re: Change the pickle jar to a flask

Now that I finished your pic.... you changed your post.. instead of keeping the backgound you want it changed now! That sort of limits the selection to a couple million choices and having no idea what your background preferences would be (Roman Fountain, Eiffel Tower, clouds, plain, ornate, seamed, seamless) You sent me back to the drawing board.. Oh well, guess you will have to be happy with whatever is provided..

So, Dream on Tiger~!
