hello guys.
im a beginner in ps and all i know for now is just how to use simple tools like cloning and eraser, moving, magnifying etc..
I have a friend how has a project that needs to be done in the next days.
my problem is that the background looks too fake because i erased it because of the shade.
this image is from my iphone and i will put the original copy of the edited version tommorow. but for now i hope you can teach me how to add layers, and if possible to add one in here:

it should be some kind of a wall (you know, like the walls on old houses that hurts your hand when you touch them) and another question: how can i make the bar that holds the jeans to be more visible? thanks alot! it is very improtant to me!

Using masks to hide parts of the image: the links in this will help.
Need to remove a background from something?

thank you for the replay, although i didn't understand it and i have to go to school now and i need this project to be done asap. the files included are the background wall and the image in photoshop. i was following this guide on youtube: http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=ly0xxi3_JpI (external link)
but i am stuck in the part after adding the background. I can't right click on the picture after putting the background to cover it. anyway, those are the files. I want it to look as real as possible: http://www.f2h.co.il/f​5kqplppxrm (external link) http://www.f2h.co.il/g​h166wmslvr (external link)

I sent you a PM, & I don't know what language that is on the site, but I'm not going to download it, which might be another reason why you haven't had other replies from us. Sorry.

Check the "updated" video tutorial that was posted on youtube, using a layer mask instead of erasing the background. That will give you more flexibility in restoring parts you accidently lost.
Alternatively, watch a better tutorial: http://scottkelby.com …eaturing-deke-mcclelland/ (external link)
