Photoshop is a powerful tool that can help you create stunning images. However, it’s not always straightforward, and some tasks might require a bit of know-how. In this tutorial, we will show you how to add a realistic moon to your image and crop it on Photoshop.
First, we need to place the embedded image of the moon on our canvas. However, when we try to crop it, we realize that we can only crop the full-size image, even when selecting just the layer with the moon on it.
To fix this, we need to right-click on the image and convert it to a smart object. This action makes Photoshop remember the original image when we make changes to it. Then, we double-click on the image to open it in a new tab.
Now we can crop the image as we want. In this example, we cropped it to have a nice full moon. Once we finish, we hit Enter and save the image. However, we still need to save the changes to the original image by pressing Control + S.
If we want to remove the background, we can use the magic eraser tool. However, we need to rasterize the image first. Once we do that, we can save the image, and we’re done!
By following these simple steps, we’ve added a realistic moon to our cartoon image. We hope you found this tutorial helpful and straightforward. Remember to convert the image to a smart object, double-click to open it in a new tab, and save your changes to the original image.
