1.
 

Click here to open the picture of a mug.

You can use you're own if you wish, but you'll have to improvise a bit.

 
 
2.
 

Let's add the logo now.

Click File in the menu and choose Place...

Find the logo, select it and click Place.

Click here do download the dreevoo.com logo.

 
 
3.
 

A new layer containing the logo has been created. Place it on the mug, you can also change the size if you wish.

When changing size, hold the Shift key so it's stays in proportion.


 
 
4.
 

When you finish placing the logo into the right position, right click it and choose Warp.

 
 
5.
 

Stretch the right and left side of the logo a bit (see picture).

 
 
6.
 

Let's make the logo more natural looking.

Select the mug layer (Background), hold the Ctrl key and klick the logo layer thumb nail (see picture).

You just created the logo layer selection.

 
 
7.
 

Press Ctrl + J to create a new layer from the selection and drag it to the top of the layers.

 
 
8.
 

Choose the Hard Light blending mode for the new layer.

 
 
9.
 

Let's make the logo look more realistic by "fooling around" with the Level's settings.

Press Ctrl + L and try the same settings as I did.

Click OK.

 
 
10.
 

Now select the upper two layers (see pictures).

Hold the Ctrl key to select more then one layer.

Then press Ctrl + E to merge the selected layers into single layer.

 
 
11.
 

Set the layer opacity to 50%...

... and you're done!

View from the far.
