I have a picture on top of a background that is wider than it and the background colors don't match. I tried to use the eye drop but you can still tell it does not blend in. I was wondering if i can make both backgrounds blend in another way?
Setup your document and place your image:
Rectangle Marquee Tool and select the background from the image:
Edit -> Copy Merged then go to
File -> New and click ok then go to
Edit -> Paste:
Take the file and save it out as
foobar.psd. Go to
Edit -> Define pattern:
Create a new layer and place it below the layer with your image:
Paint Bucket Tool with it defined as pattern and locate the pattern you created:
Convert the image layer to a rasterized layer. After applying the pattern go to the
Clone Stamp Tool and play around with the layers and background and take your time on this:
Ideally I would add the text with HTML and CSS but thats me. This is a quick way to do it especially if you are trying to knock out a lot of main image galleries for a store website. There are other ways but based on your situation I would do it this way since you can massage the background color better.
