Add alloy wheels to a car

Step 1

Open an image of a car and an image of an alloy wheels in Photoshop. I have used an image of car with side profile, but any image of a car should work.

Step 2

Take the Elliptical Marquee tool and make a selection around the alloy wheel. It helps if you hold Alt key while dragging the mouse to make the circular shape.

Now hit Ctrl + X to cut the image then select the image of car and hit Ctrl + V to paste the alloys. Your image should look like below:

Step 3

Select the free transform tool Ctrl + T and hold down the Shift key to reduce the size of the alloy until they fit on the image of the car.

Step 4

Select Ctrl + J to duplicate the alloy layer and move the new alloy into the correct position. You may have to resize the alloy using the free transform tool.

You should now have alloys on your car.
