Bread on a cat photo manipulation with Photoshop

Recent internet meme craze, catbreading. Let me show you how you can do this without molesting the cat, using Photoshop.

 
  Author: mat | Version: CS5 | 4th April 2012 |  
 
 
1.
 

Open a picture of a cat.

 
 
2.
 

Click here to download slice of a bread picture.

In the menu click File and choose Place... and choose the picture of a bread of slice you just downloaded.

 
 
3.
 

Resize and move the bread to cover the cats head (see picture).

Hold the Ctrl key while resizing to keep the image ratio in tact.

 
 
4.
 

Reduce the bread slice layer Opacity to 23%.

 
 
5.
 

Right click the bread slice layer and choose Rasterize Layer.

 
 
6.
 

Choose the Eraser Tool.

 
 
7.
 

And erase bread where the head is.

You're basically revealing the cat's head so it's going to look like the bread was put over its head.

 
 
8.
 

Set the Opacity back to 100%.

 
 
9.
 

It should look like something like this.

 
 
10.
 

Now click to change the brush (see picture) ...

 
 
11.
 

and choose the Chalk 11 brush (see picture) and set the brush Size to about 23px.

This is still an eraser brush.

 
 
12.
 

Now start clicking th edge of the bread bellow cat's head.

You might want to click more then one time on the same place to get a more crisp edge.


 
 
13.
 

Click everywhere you want it too look like the cat's head or hair doesn't cover the bread.

 
 
14.
 

Choose the Burn Tool.

 
 
15.
 

Set the Exposure to 30%.

 
 
16.
 

And carefully click around the inner edges of the bread slice.

You want to achieve a more emphasized look of bread crumbs on inner edge of the bread.

 
 
17.
 

Choose the Brush Tool.

Choose the Soft Round brush type and set the size to about 7 px.

 
 
18.
 

Create a new layer.

 
 
19.
 

Press D to set a black foreground color and draw a shadow of an ear and a part of the head like I did.

 
 
20.
 

Set the shadow Opacity to about 35%.

 
 
21.
 

Your a professional Photoshop catbreader now. :)
