    6 Deselect active selection by pressing Ctrl+D. Make "Copy of Raster 1"visible and the current active layer. Decrease its opacity until yousee the Raster 1's photo edges. This will be our guide in making aselection. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
    7 Let's get to the fun part! Use your favorite selection method to select the head. I prefer to use the lasso tool [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]. Selection settings:
    Type = Point to point
    Feather = 0
    Smoothing = 0
    Antialias = checked
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] While holding down the Shift key (Add), apply a selection [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] on the feet area of the iguana as shown in the image below.

    11 Deselect all selection by pressing Ctrl+D. Make "Copy of Raster 1" your active layer. Create a small rectangle selection [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] around the feet area and click your mouse once anywhere on the image. This will make a selection on the feet area. Add a shadow ( Effects > 3D Effects > Drop Shadow ). My settings :
    Vertical = 16 Horizontal = 5 Opacity = 56 Blur = 5 Color = Black
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
