    Hello! Anyone have advice for a noob?

    Hi there! I'm new and glad to be here! This is clearly my first post. As someone with no photoshop experience or artistic skills whatsoever, I decided to come here and engage with the masters. I just wrote an ebook and am looking for an eye-catching book cover to publish it with. I have the image I want modified and would love it if anyone could share some advice on where I should go to get it photoshopped. Anyone who is interested in editing the photo themselves will receive credit on the inside cover of my novel. Thanks! And again, glad to be here!

    Re: Hello! Anyone have advice for a noob?

    Most definitely. I would like this girl to be photoshopped onto a forest background. She needs to be in the middle foreground and behind her is a woodland forest that's on fire (covering about the bottom half of the background) and above the fire is an evening sky. I would like it to be 2000 tall by 1250 wide, or at least have a height/width ratio of 1.6. I would be very appreciative if someone could please do this for me!-o-n-s-w-n-covergirl-jpg

    How is this for a quicky erm I mean quick edit

    -firelady-jpg

    Lot's of fire selection through channels and a normal forest fire. Used Adobe Lighting effects to add a warm, directional hint of orange to the model and then a bit of blending so she is in rather than on the image. Hope this is the sort of thing you meant OP.
    This is reduced for showing here, original is of the resolution you wanted.
