[b:f781568f91]Step 4:[/b:f781568f91] Now that u have ur background. ur ready to get ur image on. download some wallpapers or stock images and seperate the image u like from the background. In this case my image is Sub-Zero from MK. Make sure that ur pic matches ur color scheme because if it doesnt, it's gunna turn out like crap. So paste ur pic in and u should get something like this.

[b:f781568f91]Step 5:[/b:f781568f91] Change the pic layer blending mode to Luminosity. We are doing this so the pic can blend in more nicely. Here is an example.

[b:f781568f91]Step 6:[/b:f781568f91] Duplicate the pic layer and change the duplicated layer's blending mode to Normal with Opacity 60%. This is what u should get.

[b:f781568f91]Step 7:[/b:f781568f91] Duplicate the layer one more time and set the blending mode to screen. Now the pic should blend nicely with the background.
