on the ufo image window, ure the marqee tool, (the dashed line box) and draw one around your ufo. then click file, copy. then double click on the background window to bring it foward. then go to file, paste. use the move tool to resize and position your ufo hope this helps!

digitech (author)berky932009-02-16

the version of photoshop I'm using is photoshop elements six.

author
berky93 (author)digitech2009-02-16

oh. why does photoshop elements have better visual appeal than regular photoshop?! :(

PSE is aimed at amateur photographers and new users, whereas PS is aimed at pros. For pros, functionality, and version to version consistency (some have been using PS for a decade or more,) trump ease of use and prettiness. PSE is pretty and easy to attract new users and people who don't want to spend hours and hours (weeks, months?) learning how to get the most out of their photo editor.

I dont know about that. I think PSE is aimed at users who only need to touch-up photographs, adjust hue/saturation, brightness, crop, etc. regular PS is for users create and modify images past general retouching

there is photoshop CS4 which is aimed at the "prosumers" so there isnt a need to simplify and make the interface more prettyful however, PSE has a quick and easy interface for the more average user

author
digitech (author)berky932009-02-16

well, adobe is constantly putting out better versions of photoshop, they all ready made Photoshop Seven and they also released CS4

author
berky93 (author)digitech2009-02-16

yeah. I actually like cs3 better than cs4.

oh yeah, adding some lens blur helps make it more realistic. only a little bit, like in an old photograph. and while in the lens blur dialog, increase the noise a little to make it look grainy. I made a picture using that technique, I think it worked out really well:

looks good, although something seems off about the ufos. maybe the lighting. still, its a picture of ufos, so its never going to be perfectly realistic.

author
digitech (author)berky932009-02-16

thanks, also I forgot to adjust the lighting because the background is backlit while the ufo's lightsource is at the front

author
berky93 (author)digitech2009-02-16

yeah. luckily for me all I had to do was flip the ufo picture I had horizontally because it was lighted from the side but the wrong side.
