Fill unusual shape with photo

Recommended Posts

Here's how I do it:

1. place the photo and shape on separate layers. Be sure to position the photo where you would want it in the shape.

2. Select the layer with the shape and using the Magic Wand Tool, select the inside of the shape.

3. Next, select the layer with the photo in it and go to Edit > Invert Selection. Once the selection has been inverted, press 'Delete'.


1. position the photo in the shape on a separate layer.

2. Select the outside area of the shape.

3. Select the layer with the photo and press 'Delete'.

This is assuming that you've deleted any backgound that the shape has. Removing the white background is basically the same principle. Select the area outside of the shape and then delete it.
