So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and join this coast clicked. The and northern Britain. See you in the course 2. 0 Creating Blueprint Space Explorer Photo Composite Photo Manipulation Photoshop: welcome to this lecture. In this lecture, we are going to create a rough sketch for our idea off Space Explorer for the manipulation . As you know that whenever we get any idea, we should always put this on a piece off paper or on a digital drawing. So in this lecture, we are going to greet of Blueprint or are rough sketch for our Space Explorer for the manipulation or for the composite which we're going to create, and that would help us or gliders in the proper direction. Because if you have your idea in your mind and suppose you are not able to work right now on that idea, and maybe after some days you might forget that idea. So it's always better toe have a rough sketch off that idea to start any kind off a photo editing or photo composites. But this is a very too, especially for the photo composes off the foot of manipulation. So let's get started. So what I will do so I will create the Space Explorer on. It would be something like this. Mind my A sketch. It's very sketchy because I'm not able to draw hair properly so it's going to be a space explorer floating in the space. Okay, so I'm just putting these idea here. We'll be having some kind off planets on many stars, so it will be a galaxy type space. So we're going to create all of this from these scratch and some area I going to use some texture overly as well. And we're going to put some rope over here, as you see that in the astronauts, they do tied themselves with some kind of a rope or wire. Onda, uh, here will be having some lights. Okay, so basically, this is our idea. Andi. Now we'll start working on this on for this weapons. We will be needing one astronaut image, which would be over here on the planet, which we can place over here on Gigi stars, which we need to create. And we're going to add some lights and all that. So we'll start building this idea one by one. So let's get started. So thank you so much. See you in the next lecture in the next lecture will start walking on this idea 3. 1 Creating Abstract Background Space Explorer Photo Manipulation Photoshop: First of all, we're going to take this major and thereafter will alone this image and right click and select the convert to Smart Object. And then we'll go to the filter blur and will Jews the motion blur. And from this dialog books will choose the angle Jiro or something like this on increase the distance to 2000 pixels and make the angle something like this and press pok on right click and select Russ, rise the layer, then go to the adjustments 70 vibrance and increased the vibrance on a little bit saturation so that it looks very colorful. 4. 2 Placing Astronaut Space Explorer Photo Manipulation Photoshop: Now let's bring in this space Explorer or this astronaut over here on my pressing controlled shift, resize it with your mouse on door dated. Do something like this press and to genius layer blend more to screen, and that would take away the black alert press control L and then click and drag it inside so that this white frame just cause of it and justice accordingly and press OK, right click and selected the convert to Smart object. 5. 3 Creating Galaxy Space Explorer Photo Manipulation Photoshop: Let's go toe the textures on bringing out these pictures. You can download these from the resource holders on, drop this structure over here and resize it to make it big on changes. Little bland, more to let a screen. Well, let's try a different one soft light. Oh, let's say I think screen is looking good and lower down its opacity so that it doesn't have that much off effect to something like this. From the layer opacity, you can adjust that. Oh, let's try overly. It just is a Pope Cassity clothing the Cilipi s or not Layer, go to the edit and select D perch all that would remove all the memories so that you'll get some free space to work on. 6. 4 Bending Astronaut Space Explorer Photo Manipulation Photoshop: go to the edit until it Lee papa trapped and then zooming and click to create up in on the legs and on different point we cannot create to the even too close to each other. So we have toe make beans on different points, so just click on that would create up in and this dialog box shows that you cannot create pin which are too close to each other. So basically, we can click and drag these beans toe adjust exploration because we want to make his leg little bit bend treat one been over here and drag it outside one being over here and and just heard something like this on Once you're done, press this check mark and that would be a plight. So you can see by turning this on and off he was standing straight.

In this lecture, we're going to learn how to create the stars from scratch in photo show. So for this purpose, we need ah, background. So at this moment, this is a white background, so making black. So make sure the foreground color is see black and then press gold backspace or option backspace to fill the background or are layer from the foreground color. Make sure your foreground color should be black. And then after we are going to come down over here and create a new blank clear on that would create a new blank clear on here again. We need to fill this with the black color so we can pass old or backspace. Otherwise, you could lead a duplicate copy of this by pressing control G oka magic. On that, we will get the same visit. All right, so now we have got the black background. Then we need to go to the filter on twos noise and choose add noise. And in this nice spender, just increase the amount to 400%. Make sure uniforms is selected on monochromatic is selected. You could go for the was in Israel, but I want to this core for the UNIFEM and make sure the monochromatic is checked.

As you can see, we have this spike in the middle. So which means that we have the lighter pixels over here, so we need to restrict them to make them look like so. So we'll be working on this laters this later on this later. All right, so we'll click and drag it to the right state until it becomes starker. And then you need to click on drag it back so that we start to see some kind of these particles are stars and zoom out and at the suspicion. If you want more stars, you can drag it to the left site and then read this later as well. So that's going to make it more brighter. So I'll go something like this right, and will press. OK, so this is our first particles and these are first blast stars. So we'll be using this for creating galaxy. And now I'll show you how you can create these small stars. So basically the process is almost the same. But here, I'll show you how you can do this. So cilic the background lately it a duplicate copy of it by pressing control G. Come on, G again, go to the filter noise and add Knicks chose the amount for 100% grass. Okay. And then again, go to the filter on blur and choose the cause. India.

A G pick from the stopped on many, so you can see them any at any place you like. Just rename it anything you want and just save it, and that's how you can get these stars or you can create the stars from the scratch. This also what would be very helpful for the purpose off placing particles in any off your editing all you have to do, just change. Its Lear planned more to screen on that it would be blank. So this black pixels would be gone if you just place this over any image. So let me just show you what I mean. So suppose I have this image and I want to play some particles over it. So I'll go for the structure which we have just created. Select the mortal by pressing the on my cable click and drag and drop. On this second document, they sit in the center press control Deka Monte and resize it to fit it on the image on change. This layer bland mode from normal toe screen and the movement will do this.
