Okay, my FI came up with a really cute idea for our holiday greeting cards. There is a picture of us on top of camels and we'd like to add a red nose on each camels nose and then santa hats on our heads. I've figured out how to add the red nose but don't know how to add a santa hat. I've found a clip art santa hat but don't know how to resize, edit it to fit our heads. Anyone a whiz at this kind of stuff?? thanks!!! here is the picture!

I use Fireworks, not Photoshop... but in Fireworks there is a tool called the 'Polygon Lasso.' You just need to carefully go around the edges of the santa hat with it. Copy it, and then paste into your original photo. I'm sure Photoshop has a similar tool! Good luck!

Oh, I also resized the hat after I pasted it into the current picture. Also used 'Free Transform' to rotate & flip to desired angle.
