The background photo is a picture of a pond taken on our walk around the lake.

The snapping turtle was sitting at our deck. Our dog was barking frantically, not knowing what this was.

I extracted the turtle from the backyard photo and put him or her in the pond where it belongs.

So cute and clever. I had to take a look when I saw the thumbnail on the forum page. I like the way you used the sign post for your turtle crossing.

I use the lasso tool to isolate the image and get rid of the background. Then I use the eraser ,set the brush to round brush, opacity 100% and normal. and start erasing,

as I get closer to the image I am extracting I reduce the size of the brush to keep the edge of the image as crisp as possible. I then add a background shadow to give the image depth. After I put the image on the background I clean up the image if I see any outlines that should not be on my layout using a very small brush.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for looking.
