    I am working on a project where I am trying to create a collectable card game, and I am trying to build my cards from a photo and a digital collectable card. I want to put the photo where the image is on the card to where it looks normal, but I am having problems doing this. Is there any advice anyone can give me? I tried to upload the pictures that I am talking about, but they are too big. Was able to make the image smaller to upload. Hopefully you can get an idea of what I am trying to do.

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    I assume you have some photo editing experience already, or you wouldn't be attempting such a venture. So, the photos you try to upload here must be no longer than 1024 pixels on the longest side, and under 250 Kb. Also, be sure you are not using someone else's images when you upload (due to copyright concerns) or that if it's someone else's you have permission or links to their own work.

    The photos I am trying to use are from places where it is ok to edit. I am taking a photoshop class in college to where I have gotten some very basic experience from, but I don't think enough to complete this project. Before you ask no this project is not for my photoshop class. I will see if I can resize the pics so I can upload them.

    OK, next step with uploading images is to tick the button which says "full image" beside each one so that they are not just thumbnails. I've done that for you this time.

    I assume the first is the one you want to use, and the second is the one you want to insert into the card. What you want to do is cut out the picture portion of your original so that there's a blank space within the cutout. Place the image you want in the cutout behind the original and resize it until it fits properly, then flatten your layers. At the same time, you can save the unflattened .psd file for further manipulation.

    That is what I have tried to do so far. The problem that I am having is fitting it around the curv
    I remember seeing some where that you can increase the canvas and fill in the missing spots with the rest of the photo kind of like cloning the picture to fill in the missing portions (if you know what I mean).

    If I'm understanding your problem correctly there are loads of videos on using masks in Photoshop. Basically you load both photographs into one file as different layers, then create a mask with the top layer and then paint out what you don't want. Here's a video but there are plenty more:

    This is a very roughly done sample using the extremely small examples you put up. I hope you have access to larger files of the images you are trying to work with because these will only make icons at the quality you have here.

    Edit: I didn't spend very much time on this since there's not much to work with.

    Another way would be to select half of the card with frame and place it in another layer so you can extend the height of the frame so your image of the king won't be cropped. miniKing.jpg

    If you are doing this multiple times just use a pen tool and sure the path option. Save the file and you have a template! super fast and easy
