  • To do that, go to the “File” menu and select the “Open” option. Then, go to your image location and select your mobile image and then click on the “Open” button. Your mobile image will be opened in photoshop afterward.
  • Now, create a new layer. To do this, go to the layer panel, click on the “Create a new layer” button from the bottom of the layer panel. A new transparent layer “Layer 1” will be created.
  • Now, make a selection of the mobile screen. To do this, go to the layer panel, click on the “Layer 1” layer, then go to the left side’s tools panel and select the “Magnetic lasso tool”. You will find the Magnetic lasso tool under the “Lasso tool”. Now, start the starting point of the magnetic lasso tool from the edge of the mobile screen, then hover your cursor around the edge of the screen, you will see that it is drawing the selection path automatically and then join the path with the starting point, the selection will be made.
  • Now, fill the selection with the black color. To do this, go to the left side’s tools panel and select the “Paint bucket tool” and you will see the paint bucket icon on your mouse tip. You will find the paint bucket tool under the “Gradient tool”. Then, in the left side’s tools panel and set the foreground color as black. Now, click on the selection area.

  • Go to the “File” menu and select the “Open” option. Then, go to your image location and select your image and then click on the “Open” button. Your image will be opened in a new tab in photoshop afterward.
  • Do some color adjustment of this photo. To do this, go to the “Filter” menu and select the “Camera raw filter” option. A window will appear. From there, decrease the “Exposure” a little bit, decrease the “Highlights” completely and increase the “Texture” and “Clarity” a little bit. Then, click on the “OK” button.
  • Now, press “CTRL+A” from the keyboard to select the whole image, then press “CTRL+C” from the keyboard to copy the whole image, then come to the existing image’s tab and press “CTRL+V” to paste the copied image. A new layer “Layer 2” will be added. Make sure that this layer is on top of all the layers.
  • Now, we will adjust the size of the road image we have inserted, adjust the size in a way where the far point of the road will be on the inside of the mobile screen. So, go to the layer panel, select the “Layer 2” layer, then press “CTRL+T” to activate the free transform. Now, drag the handler of the free transform outward and place the far point of the road inside the mobile screen. If you are not able to figure out where you are putting the road, decrease the opacity from the layer panel for a few moments, place the road and after the placement has done increase the opacity again. Press “Enter” after adjusting the size.
  • Now, go to the layer panel, right click on the “Layer 2” layer and select the “Create clipping mask” option. You will see the image has been cropped.
  • We need to make the rest of the part of the road visible. To do this, make a duplicate of the “Layer 2” layer first. So, go to the layer panel, right click on the “Layer 2” layer and select the “Duplicate layer” option. A dialog box will appear, click on the “OK” button. A “Layer 2 copy” layer will be created. Or, alternatively, go to the layer panel, click on the background layer and press “CTRL+J” from the keyboard. A “Layer 2 copy” layer will be created.

Now, go to the layer panel, click on the “Add layer mask” button from the bottom of the layer panel. The road will be visible.

Now, go to the left side’s tools panel and select the “Brush tool”, then set the foreground color black from the tools panel.

Levels panel will appear. From there, click on the “The adjustment affects all layers below (click to clip to layer)” button from the bottom of the levels panel. Now adjust the color levels. In the levels panel, from the bottom color slider, drag the right side’s slider to the left a little bit. Then, from the top side color level slider, slide the middle slider a little bit to the right. A new levels layer “Levels 1” will be created. Now, click on the white thumbnail of the “Levels 1” layer, and press “CTRL+I” from the keyboard. The road becomes whiter.

  • Now, we will adjust the size of the castle image we have inserted, adjust the size in a way where the castle image will be inside of the mobile. So, go to the layer panel, select the “Layer 4” layer, then press “CTRL+T” to activate the free transform. Now, drag the handler of the free transform outward and place the castle inside the mobile screen. If you are not able to figure out where you are putting the castle, decrease the opacity from the layer panel for a few moments, place the castle and after the placement has done increase the opacity again.

  • Go to the “File” menu and select the “Open” option. Then, go to your image location and select the man’s image and then click on the “Open” button. Your image will be opened in photoshop afterward.
  • Unlock the background layer. To do this, go to the layer panel and click on the padlock icon in the background layer. The layer will be unlocked afterward and the layer will be renamed as “Layer 0” automatically.
  • Now, we will only copy the man portion and insert it in our main photo. To do this, you can use either the lasso tool or the quick selection tool. So, go to the left side’s tools panel, select the “Lasso tool” and make a selection path on the edge of the man and join with the starting point.
  • After making the selection, go to the layer panel and click on the “Add layer mask” button from the bottom of the layer panel. The selected part will be separated.

  • Now, go to the layer panel, click on the man’s image layer “Layer 5”, then click on the “Create new fill or adjustment layer” button from the bottom of the layer panel and select the “Levels” option, a new layer “Levels 2” will be created. A levels panel will appear. From there, click on the “The adjustment affects all layers below (click to clip to layer)” button from the bottom of the levels panel to clip with the layer. Now adjust the color levels. In the levels panel, from the bottom color slider, drag the left side’s slider to the right slightly to darken the man’s image color. Then, from the top side’s color level slider, slide the middle slider to the right slightly.
  • Now, put a shadow of the man. Create a new layer below the man’s image layer “Layer 5”. To do this, go to the layer panel, click on the “Levels 1” layer which is related to the road’s layer, then click on the “Create new layer” button from the bottom of the layer panel. A new transparent layer “Layer 6” will be created below the man’s image layer “Layer 5”. Now, go to the left side’s tools panel and select the “Brush tool”, then set the foreground color as black from the tools panel, then go to the top bar/option bar, set the opacity around 60% to 70%, and then brush below the legs of the man and then set the opacity around 60% to 70% from the layer panel.
  • Now, merge all the layers in a new layer. So, go to the layer panel and select the top layer of the list. Then press “CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+E” from the keyboard. All the layers will be merged in a new layer “Layer 7”.
  • Now, go to the layer panel, click on the merged layer “Layer 7”, then go to the “Filter” menu, then go to the “Blur gallery” option and select the “Iris blur” option.
