Copy background and use it for painting?

3 posts in this topic



I was wondering if it by any way is possible to copy any kind of background in a picture and then use this copy to paint in another picture? I need a picture to have the same background as another picture. The background is not found on the internet or made up; its taken on location with a unique background and this is the one I need in another picture too. Perhaps its possible to use a brush tool? Copy it and then post it? 

I really need your tips. 


Thank you

Yes. Although without seeing either, it is hard to advise the best method.


I suggest you watch these two videos, then come back with any questions. Best to ask in the Questions forum though.
