Shoe Pattern Manipulation

In this tutorial I will be teaching you how to do a simple shoe manipulation like the below:


Step 1:

First off you’ll need to save the picture below and open it up in Photoshop.


The image below is the pattern we will be using to put onto the shoe, so save it and open it up in Photoshop as well.


Step 2:

Now that you have your two images, let’s begin. Start by dragging and positioning the pattern image into the shoe document, like below:


Make sure to position the pattern image so that it is fully covering the shoe.

Step 3:

Once you have the pattern over the shoe, change the Blending Mode of that pattern image layer to Linear Dodge, like below:


You should end up with something similar to this:


Step 4:

Now you see that the pattern is well blended with the shoe, but now we need to cut off the excess from the pattern.

With a 12px Rounded Brush Eraser start erasing the pattern image where it goes over the shoe cover at the bottom, like below:


Hint: Make sure not to erase parts of the pattern that are on the shoe that you want to see.

Now erase the pattern image that is inside of the shoe, like below:


Step 5:

Now that all the excess parts of the pattern are erased, you are done! You can now put this image on a cool background to display it nice.
