I am new to PhotoShopCS.
what I want to do is take an image that has 3 people in it. cut out 1 person and put that person on a separate layer. I tried using the pen tool but whatever I cutout turns black. How can I get the image of that person on the new layer. Thanks in advance.

You might have the "Shape Layer" button selected in the options bar for the pen tool...so it is filling the path w/ your foreground color. If so, click on the "Paths" button in the options bar...now when you trace your image w/ the pen tool, the path will appear in the Paths Palette...double-click it and rename it to save it...you can make this path into a selection and cut and paste your image within this selection to a new layer or mask out the background outside this selection.
