After you have closed your selection, simply right click within your selection and choose “Make Selection…” Click and hold within your selection and drag over to your other image.

4.) You’ll notice that the lower part of the neck is cutoff… we’ll need to fix this. With your pen tool selected, draw out what the shape of the “thing” should be. Once you’re done, right click within and make your selection (like you did above). Now choose your Clone Stamp Tool (S)… CTRL+Click on an area of the “thing” and begin to fill out the missing piece.

5.) Choose your eraser tool (E) and choose a large soft round brush and begin to gently blend out the feathers into the cooked turkey. You can also go to Image > Adjustments and mess around with the color, balance, brightness and contrast.
