I am trying to use the lasso to lasso an object from a picture
Then Edit >Cut
Then open a new picture

But the size of the first object (lasso) is larger then the second picture how do I shrink the object

Hi,

 Select the new object (selection box around it, for example), and right click it. Click Free Transform.

Then resize it as you wish (press Shift while dragging to maintain width/heigth proportions)

cheers ;)

acseven is correct. The Free Transform can be done with the copied image as it is pasted into a new, blank Photoshop image, or it can be done to the newly created layer when pasted into the destination image.

If your object happens to have relatively similar colors, you can also try to use the Magic Wand tool to select a large area of the image with similar colors. The Magic Wand can be set to have different levels of tolerance, allowing you to select more varying colors, if needed.

I also highly recommend learning to use the Magnetic Lasso tool to select complex edges. Once it is mastered, you can select just about any kind of object, from simple curves like soccer balls to complex edges like maple leaves (shown in one of the examples in the about.com tutorial above).

Once you have composited your images one on top of the other, you may want to play with the levels, hue/saturation, and brightness/contrast of the two layers to better match the appearance of both pictures for a better composite graphic. Photoshop CS has a Match Color tool (Image > Adjustments > Match Color...) that can assist in matching colors between components of a composite image originating from different photographs.
