Here is what I did with PSE8:

Place a copy of the portrait above the new background.

Use the Quick Selection tool to select man and use that selection to create a mask on the portrait.

Switch the layer mode of the new background to Overlay. It is just that easy.


Ronny, thanks.  Its "just that easy" when you know what youre talking about, lol.  I don't use ever, so I just need to experiment I guess.

And to every, thank you for sharing, I really do appreciate it.
