A simple tutorial where we take a screen shot of our desktop and put on a screen on another picture.

1.
 

Open a random web page or an application and press the Print Screen to take a screen shot of your desktop.

If you hold the Alt key you will take a screen shot of only the active window.

 
 
2.
 

In Photoshop click File and choose New.

In the new document settings window the dimensions of your screen shot are already entered, just click OK.

 
 
3.
 

In the menu click Edit and choose Paste to paste you screen shot.

Choose the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M for a keyboard shorcut).

 
 
4.
 

Now select the area of your screen shot image you will than attach into a screen on another image.

You can as well skip this step if you want to.


In the menu click Edit and choose Copy.

 
 
5.
 

Open a photo with a computer or a TV screen.

The angle of a screen doesn't matter we will learn how to adjust to it in the following steps.

 
 
6.
 

In the menu click Edit and choose Paste, to paste the selected area of your screen shot.

Press Ctrl + T to enter free transformation mode of a layer.

 
 
7.
 

..., hold Ctrl and adjust the screen shot layer to the upper left corner of the screen/display (see picture).

Holding Ctrl key enables you to transform the layer with a perspective.

Don't confirm the changes yet ...

 
 
8.
 

Do the same with the left bottom corner.

 
 
9.
 

 Right bottom corner.

 
 
10.
 

You get the picture :)

 
 
11.
 

To confirm the changes click Commit transform (Return).

Or press Enter key.

Display has now a new picture, let's add a bit of reflection for a more realistic feel.

In the menu click Layer, Layer Style and choose Inner Glow...

Choose the same settings as I did and click OK.
