Screen Shot 2023-02-10 at 11.05.12 AM.pngHey guys, I'm trying to make a booth design with the American Flag. I'd like to have photos of families and children replacing parts/shapes of the flag but I want to keep the flag's shadows and highlights when im replacing with photos. For example, I'd like to replace this star with that photo. At the same time, I want to keep the shadow and highlight the star already on the American Flag picture. I'd like to cover the whole flag in different photographs but maintain the shadows and highlights the flag already has so it doesn't look choppy and looks like it just a part of the flag. Another thing, I want the photo to match the color of the flag whichever area it is. How would I do this as well? 

 

I tried explaining the best I could haha. Thank you! ❤️ I did this stuff in the past but just forgot how to do it. I'm pretty rusty and don't know what name for a tutorial I should look up.

4. Click the corresponding photo layer, turn the visibility back on and while selection is active, click the Layer Mask icon to mask the photo to the shape of the star.

5. Bonus - click the link icon between the image and the layer mask. This will

Please post part of the flag-image and one or two of the other images. 

 

On white the Blend Mode Multiply and some Blend If-settings might suffice.

6. Adjust the layer blending mode to blend the photo in to the flag.
