    Does this work in 6 and 7 or what. So far, I can't get anywhere in seven.

      It seems to be a broken link for me. But I really would like to see it. I'll check back later.

        Rachel,
        I get no where with the link either. Check your message to see if the address is correct. Can't wait to see the tutorial. Sounds like a real handy one.

              That one works. Thanks Greg.

              Rachel,

              Thanks for the tutorial. The background eraser is something I haven't played with, but now I've got a reason to do so.

                Sorry about the link, this was hosted on a freebie site. I'll move it over to my domain later this weekend.

                I'm not sure about PS 5, but I wrote this tutorial when I had PS 6.0 and it still applies for 7.0.

                      Thanks Rachel,
                      That was a great tutorial, it worked pretty well for me. There are some new things I never used before and learned how to use. Like the background eraser. And the adjustment layer with the levels...that was great!! Thanks a lot.

                      Just one question...how did you get the countryside sky to fit in the harbor background...mine was a little small and I ended up stretching the countryside sky to fit in the background...but I'm not sure if that would print ok, with the stretching or what...

                      Is that what you did? stretch the sky to fit behind the boat?

                            What a wonderful tutorial

                            I am very impressed. Give it 5 stars for usefullness and making the difficult easy.

                            I've been trying to do this sort of thing ever since my purchase of Adobe Photo Deluxe 3 or 4 years ago with mixed results. The photographer never showed up at my wedding 43 years ago (on the day of the biggest snowstorm in New York City history, so I guess he had an exucse). We took pictures a month later in my old bedroom against the the most ugly drapes you ever saw.

                            I've never tried this particular technique, but I intend to do so. One of the things I like about Photoshop (and yes, I've got the full scale program) is that there are multiple ways to do things.

                            Thank you also for the hints about that slight blur to meld the resulting silhouette into the background. That should take care of the hard edge problem nicely.

                            I'll also take your hint about keeping a backgrounds folder. One of the problems of trying to reconstruct the Wedding photo that never was is making a reasonable background for it.
