Step 1: Choosing your Photographs
First, you need to decide what photo you want to put your ghost in-I suggest using one with enough empty background space to fit the ghost to avoid countless hours of editing. I used this old family portrait I found on the internet:
Next, you need to decide which image you want to make into a "ghost". I choose an image of a women in a white gown, because of her already present ghost like qualities. However, you can use any image you want-you can even make your dog a ghost if you wish! Here is the image I used:
Once you decide on your photos, you are ready to begin!
Step 2: The Ghost Image
Step 3: Resize and Select
After you've chosen your size, select the part of the image that you want to use as your ghost. For example, in my picture, I just want the girl to be the ghost, I just selected her. The Magnetic Lasso Tool might make this step easier.
