Photoshop is an amazing tool that can be used to do many things. You can edit photos, create art and mess with your family by changing your sister into the Grinch for her Christmas card.
My favorite way to prank my friends and family is to take a photo of them and cut them out and put them on a different background. For example, this is one I made of myself. What I first did to create this is to upload both photos into the Photoshop file. Then I take the layer with the picture of my friend on it. I messily cut it out with the “Polygonal Lasso Tool” (that is just my favorite tool to use but you can use the quick selection tool, lasso tool, or the marquee tools) making sure to get every part of them. I go up and make it into a mask that reveals the section that I have selected. I go then and edit the mask by clicking the drop-down menu “Layer” and selecting “Layer Mask”. I then erase any excess of the original background. I hit save and then position my face on the background. Follow the same steps for any additional accessories. Then you can send these for birthdays, holidays, or just when you are thinking of them. They are perfect for any occasion. It is one of my favorite things to do on Photoshop. I have always been one to make custom cards instead of buying them. This just takes it up a step. And even though this is humorous, it still shows the person that you are giving it to that you took time and effort to do this. It shows that you care. Here is a link to a video of me creating this image.
Also if you wanted to you can make a serious card or picture of someone. The limit of Photoshop really is your imagination.
