    CHALLENGE CLOSED
    On behalf of Nicole of NBK Designs, I would like to thank all those who entered this challenge and posted some amazing layouts. The randomly chosen winner of the $5 coupon is CherylinDesigns, I will send a PM with your coupon code soon. Thank you all again for playing, I hope you had some fun

    Hi Creative scrappers, I hope you can join in and try this technical challenge for this month and come up with some interesting results. I have added some step by step directions which should work fine with Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and hopefully Creative Artist. My first sample is replacing a building wall with a downtown image, using the polygonal Lasso tool, like you see on city building in some countries. My second example is replacing part of a floppy hat using the quick selection tool with some flowers. Feel free to use whatever method or image of your choice. The main thing is to have some fun with this challenge
    Replace a shape with another image
    Use free legal images from Unsplash, Pixabay or Pexels for buildings and graffiti walls.
    1. Use the polygonal Lasso Tool to select the area to be replaced

    2. Go to Select>Inverse
    3. Click on the Mask Icon to add a mask

    4. Select an image to replace the blank wall and place it beneath the masked layer

    Alternative Method

    Use the Quick selection tool to select the area to be replaced

    Here’s another example using quick selection

    Your examples are so clear BUT the lasso tool and I are not friends. I had a heck of a time with it! Anyway, the picture here was shooting up to the amazing ceiling of a restored theatre and the new fill was an outdoor sculpture which I liked.
