Question How to create a cloud from a photo?
Greetings,

I am new here... this is my first question... so...

I would need to create a cloud on the blue sky from a picture (it's a brain).
How may I make a realsitic brain-shaped cloud?

Thanks,

Tamás

RE: How to create a cloud from a photo?
There will be several ways to do this, for starters.

Find a suitable cloud.
Match the sizes of the 2 images (Image -> scale)
Remove the background of the brain image. Various ways, if the background is a single colour add an alpha channel, color select, delete.
Desaturate the brain image (Colors -> desaturate)
Have as layers, brain over cloud.
Put the brain layer into overlay mode

I got a slightly better result using a plugin, multi-band-blend, but getting a suitable masking layer was a pita. Maybe for the future.
