After you've downloaded a background:

  1. Download Photoshop Mix and either log in or make an Adobe ID. You can find the app in the Apple App Store or Google Play.
  2. Open Photoshop Mix. Create a new composition with the plus sign in the corner. Add the background image you saved to your device.
  3. Use the plus sign on the right of the photo to add a second image (either a foreground image saved on your device or one you take through the app). You may have to resize the images.
  4. Make sure your foreground image is highlighted. In the menu at the bottom, choose “Cut Out.” There’s an “Auto” button, or you can use “Smart” to paint areas in or out. (A combination of these two usually works best.)
  5. Once you’ve got your top image cut out and placed where you want it, use the layers to the side of the photo and drag the top layer box onto the bottom layer box and select "Merge Layers".
  6. Get creative with “Looks,” add filters, or simply save to your photo gallery on your device or share your image from there by selecting "More."
  7. Don't forget to tag #UofReginaGrads2020 so we can share!
