How fascinated we all are by these half human, half fish creatures they call as mermaids, and how immensely wonderful it would be if we could turn ourselves and our loved ones into mermaids.

There’s so much more you can do with the help of a number of such interesting and immensely helpful Photoshop tutorials.

Here’s how you can change a woman into a mermaid in 20 easy steps:
