Add a 1, 2, or 3 pixel border, the pictures don't blend properly, and when using render you should cut it out and overlap it with the picture that has a backround so it isnt just a plain white background.

Also the font should be smaller and more off to the side. The fighter should be the focal point not the text. Which in this case the text is.

Check out this video for the fade effect:

And check out this tutorial from out very own Toxic:

http://www.mmaforum.com/getting-star...r-cut-out.html

It explains how to cut out fighters to use them as renders. Its basically just the pen tool but he explains it perfectly.

Please do not take what I said in a bad way, I am just trying to be constructive. You will get better with practice. Remember that in photoshop pressing F1 brings up the help menu, search anything you want and it gives you a fairly good answer and usually a quick walkthrough.

Best of luck in the future and if you need anything please ask

Exactly, so you need to cut out the fighter and make it a render

No plain white background should ever be used.

Don't stretch it, just use the Image > Image size..

and make it the size of the whole background. then put the render ontop

When you cut out the fighter it needs to be in a seperate document. then drag it over.

Doesn't need to be. You can right click after forming the path, select 'make selection', then invert the selection and either cut/delete that out.

Play around with photoshop, try and not settle for just two stock images and some text. Search tutorials for wanted effects. Learn the effects and apply them to your own work.

Takes a bit of getting used to but it's worth it
