      Hello guys I have a problem with editing this pigeon so that it look like this for example: 545_Male.jpg

      the closest that i came was this one :

          If you want to match the bottom pigeon to the top pigeon shape then:


          a. Draw round the top pigeon with the pen tool and create a shape with a fill

          b. Clip your pigeon image to that shape (Alt click between the layers in the layers panel between the two layers). This will make the shape act as a mask

          c. Pull the pigeon into the shape of the mask with the transform tools and puppet warp. The edges will be clean due to the clipping mask using the shape below.



          If you want a slightly different shape then just adjust the path for the shape tool after step a. to get the shape you want - then follow b & c.


          Draw with Pen tools in Photoshop

              For some reason , your second image is not showing - however -I've you are not getting smooth edges have you:

              a. Ensured that the shape layer (your template) contains filled pixels in the shape of the pigeon and transparency around it? White around it will not work for clipping.

              b. Ensured that the pigeon layer above it is clipped. Alt-Click on the border between the layers , in the layer panel, and a small downward arrow appears (as in the screenshot in my last post)
