How to use Christmas Digital Backdrops in Photoshop CC - beginner level.


We're thrilled to help you get started with using these beautiful Christmas backdrops in Photoshop CC. Don't worry if you're a total Photoshop beginner; I've got you covered with this easy 5-step guide:

Step 1: Download and Open the Digital Backdrop

  • After purchasing the digital backdrop, download it to your computer.
  • Locate the downloaded file and unzip it (if it's in a zip folder).
  • Open Adobe Photoshop CC.

Step 2: Import the Digital Backdrop

  • In Photoshop, go to "File" in the top menu and choose "Open."
  • Navigate to where you saved the digital backdrop and select it.
  • Click "Open" to import the backdrop into Photoshop.

Step 3: Drag and Drop Your Main Image

  • In Photoshop, open the image you want to place on the backdrop.
  • Use the Move Tool (V) from the toolbar on the left.
  • Click and drag your main image onto the backdrop document.

Step 4: Arrange the Layers

  • In the Layers panel (usually on the right side), you'll see two layers: the backdrop and your main image.
  • Make sure the backdrop layer is below your main image layer.
  • If needed, resize your main image to fit the backdrop by selecting the main image layer and using "Edit > Free Transform."

Step 5: Refine and Save

  • If required, add a Layer Mask to hide parts of your main image that overlap with unwanted areas of the backdrop.
  • Once you're satisfied with the result, go to "File" and choose "Save As" to save your edited image as a new file.
