    Try resetting the brush tool. I'm using CC2017 so it might be a little different, but the button is highlighted here.

    Sherdog shoop template database
    Imgur account URL: Sherdog Shoop Template Database

    Find the template album of a particular fighter, personality etc. by hitting "Ctrl + F" and typing the name of the person in the search box. Birth name only, no nicknames.

    The albums are organized according to the following rules:

    1. One album per fighter. If a template includes multiple fighters who cannot be separated, the template will be filed under the album of the "winning" fighter: e.g. a template containing Jon Jones and Machida is filed under Jon's album; a template containing Nate and Conor in their first fight is filed under Nate's album. If multiple fighters/personalities are present and "winning" isn't applicable, The template will be filed under the "Group" album - for example, a template containing Woodley and Wonderboy.

    2. Fighter albums include the fighter and objects he or she is closely associated with. For example, Fedor's album includes templates of his sweater; Khabib's album includes templates of his hat/papakha, Amanda Nunes' album includes templates of her lioness mask, Gilbert Melendez's includes his Giblert Melendez Reebok uniform, ec.

    3. Non-fighter who are involved with the MMA community, e.g. promoters, referees, journalists, coaches, wives etc. are filed under individual personality albums. WWE personalities are also included here as a single album.

    4. For simplicity, fighters are listed by their birth names not nicknames. Do not use nicknames to search for a fighter's album - e.g. "Donald Cerrone" instead of "Cowboy", "Maurício Rua" instead of "Shogun". Oriental fighters follow Western tradition of first name - last name, e.g. Hyun Gyu Lim not Lim Hyun Gyu.

    5. Sherdog member templates are filed under the "Sherdog Related" album.

    *Note: all albums are in grid view, which can sometimes cause difficulty when copying the URL of particularly small templates. If that happens, switch to list view by removing "/layout/grid" at the end of the album URL.

    Thank you guys. That was what I thought but I needed confirmation. I'll put these under the "Sherdog related" album. I thought about creating individual albums for each Sherdogger but I think that is a bit overkill.

    How to make an "If They Mated" shoop

    Angela Magana + Marc Diakiese in real-time

    NOTE: This tutorial is for Photoshop, but the same principles would apply to other programs.
    1. Choose images of the people you want to "mate" where both are in a similar pose. Images with transparent backgrounds are easier.
    2. Open both images as layers in the same Photoshop document. Layer order doesn't really matter, but I usually put the person whose hair I plan to use as the bottom layer.
    3. Add a layer mask to each layer.
    4. Change the opacity of the top layer to 50%.
    5. Align facial features. Scale or rotate layers if necessary to better align the layers.
    6. Change the opacity of the top layer back to 100%.
    7. Make sure the top layer mask is selected.
    8. Use the brush tool to remove features for the top layer/reveal features from the bottom layer. If you're not familiar with how layer masks work, they're a non-destructive way to remove parts of a layer. Coloring with a black brush makes that section of the layer transparent. Coloring with white makes it opaque. Using a brush with a hardness of zero is better for blending skin tones. An example of when to use a harder brush would be if you're using one person's jawline, and the other's neck.
    9. Play around with different combinations of facial features until you're happy with the results.
    10. Create adjustment layers to match the skin tones. I usually start with Brightness/Contrast, which sometimes is all you need. It's easier to make light skin darker than dark skin lighter. The only other color correction techniques I use are Hue/Saturation and Vibrance. Color correction always takes some trial and error. Use whatever techniques you find easiest.
