Quick edit Ghost Mannequin in Photoshop

Ghost Mannequin or invisible mannequin is a technique used to represent clothing in a 3D effect. The following is a quick edit technique I use in Photoshop to create this effect. This will work for most clothing, for the purposes of this article I am using a simple t-shirt.

We start with the clothing on the mannequin and in post production the remove mannequin to give the 3D effect.


Tips:

  • Photograph the garment in 360 degrees, front, side, back and maybe on an angle .

  • Capture all the detail while on the mannequin. Pockets, zips, patterns etc.

  • Capture inner details of the garment. For example, inside the neck area.

This article will assume the reader will have basic Photoshop knowledge.


Steps:

1.

Open the 1.jpg in Photoshop

2.


Use the quick selection tool to select the t-shirt

3.

Select the t-shirt

4.

Use the sliders on the right to enhance the output

5.

Output Settings, New Layer with Layer Mask

6.


After the Mannequin has been been removed

As mentioned above use the internal shots of the t-shirt to give a more 3D look.


7.

With the Quick Selection tool select top part of the neck

8.

Copy and paste the neck image into the original t-shirt image

Rename the layers and move the layer under the T-shirt layer.

9.

Command - T (MAC) or Ctr - T (PC) to resize the neck layer to fit the T-shirt

10.


The final outcome

Check out the quick video.
