I then took my desired front cover image, and got ridof my background temporally so that I could focus oncropping the background out of the image. I did thisby clicking on the eye icon next to the backgroundtab. After doing this, using the rubber tool, decreasingits size for the smaller areas, I used the blurring tool to
soften the edges, so it doesn’t look so harsh, when I
placed it back onto the background.I put the image back onto the background by clickingthe eye icon again. This enabled me to see my mainimage on its background, and also to make any edgesoftening adjustments if I need to.
