Photoshop Help Thread

Hey all, need some help with Photoshop! I want to learn how to make custom images, specificially for my Youtube page. I love my current background but a good friend of mine made it. I don’t want to bug him every time I need a new pic. So, are there any tutorials for such a thing? It involves taking an existing image, cropping out the background of that image, and then blending it in with other images.


You can see my background if you click on the link in my sig. Should give an idea of what I mean. Thanks!
