Layer Mask

1. Put Mambo back on his feet again using the Flip Command.

2. Find an image that has compression artifacts in it, zoom in and post a screen shot of the artifacts .

I deliberately compressed this to make it poor quality and show a lot of artifacts. You can especially see the artifacts in the gray area, and also on the edges around the bird's head.

3. Using a Layer mask, change Mambo's hair (feather) color.

4. Remove Mambo from any image using whatever method you prefer, then using what you have learned in this 6 weeks and the masking techniques, put Mambo in his cage to make it one image. Try to make it look as realistic as you can.
