    Hi Everyone:
    I want to learn a technique to have this womans face show on or come from the clouds?
    There are probably a bunch of techniques, but I could not find any tutorials on it, so I need step by step directions to learn how to do this.

    thanks Martrex :hail:

    Look for tutorials on layer masking and masking hair.
    To do this correctly is a multi-step process and needs to be practiced a bit before you can do it quickly and well.

    Here is a rough effort

    It depends on how prominent you want the face to be. In this rendition, I used the elliptical marquee tool with a feather setting of 25 px and copied a portion of the face, then pasted it to the sky layer. Then I set the opacity of the face layer to 25%, but it can be adjusted to suit your taste.

    How about you decide what you want first time?

    NoelNTexas and Nein-reis:

    Your compilations are good, but I think its pretty obvious that the OP isn't coming back, and the only intention here was to waste our time.
