How to Place a Logo Behind a Person in Photoshop

How to Place a Logo Behind a Person in Photoshop

Be creative with your logo placement! This tutorial will teach you how to put your logo behind a person like a pro!

How to Extend the Image

First, choose the Crop tool and check Content-Aware Crop in the top toolbar. Then, simply drag a crop edge outward, and the Content-Aware Crop will automatically fill in the empty space with more background. This works best with beach landscapes.

Alternatively, use the Crop tool and drag a crop edge outward. Using the regular Content-Aware tool, make a selection around the transparent area, including some of the background. Go to ‘Edit – Fill” and the Content-Aware option will fill the gap the same way. Make sure ‘Color Adaptation’ is checked for the best results.

How to Cut the Subject Out

If the subject is on a simple background, the Magic Wand tool is a quick and easy way to make a selection. Simply click on your background, and hold ’SHIFT’ as you click on the areas you want to cut out to include them in your selection.

Next, load your selection as a layer mask by clicking on the Layer Mask icon, then unlink the Layer and Layer Mask. This way, you can move the logo anywhere you want, and it will only show up behind the subject.

    I would like to see an episode on the difference between the opacity and fill functions in Photoshop and how & when it is best to use them.

    Glad I watched the video first because if I had watched the end first I would have thought this was all about using the cell phone.

    But this is another first rate video. I store this away so I can review them again at a later dated. One topic with one goal direction instead of having to try and learn a whole bunch of things and remembering none. Good job.

    Need to know how to remove an object like a fork from a hand and replace missing finger parts and blend the skin color so it looks flawless. I love the tutorials!!

    Love the shows, keep up the great work, I’ve been a fan since you were a clean shaven, shorthaired hipster!

    I was wondering if you could create an awesome astro galaxy, milky way image from scratch without any stock library images or your own photographs purely using brushes and layers in Photoshop?

    I’m sure your tutorial would be out of this world!

    Howdy Aaron,

    Nice tutorial as always, just curious, did you guys change the camera you have been using or have I just missed it in the last few tutorials that you posted. It looks much more HD. Just curious.

    Thank you!
    I would love an episode on how to make a ‘reusable’ multi frame template.
    I want to make an album but the standard album templates don’t fit my requirements, so would be great to make a whole page in Photoshop and add as a full page jpg
    Many thanks in advance X

    Unlink layer mask… Omg. Thank you. Not sure if I knew that. But I think I was re editing the mask everytime I wanted to move the image on that layer. THANK YOU

    Excellent stuff Aaron
    The amount of knowledge you have given me is unreal
    I have learned so much
    I include a composite image which is completely my own, to show you what you have so generously taught me over the last few years. Hundreds of elements; perspective mapping; 3D module and many layers made this .psd file > 2GB
    Not showing off, rather, shown in gratitude to you and your staff.
