Greetings,

 

In the image attached below I'm trying to just select the image in the center, so I can apply another image as 'texture' to it, so I won't have to erase everything around it. I keep getting the message that no pixels are selected it. What am I doing wrong? And is there perhaps an easier way of what I am trying to accomplish?

 

What I'm trying so far to achieve my goal: 

  • I open the main image; then I open the texture image and select 'overlay'
  • I make the texture image layer active and start erasing around the edges

 

Thanks in advance!

Add your texture layer on top of the tank image, then Ctrl/CMD click on the tank layers thumbnail to make the selection active, then just click on the add layer mask icon
