Cutting out problem!
on Apr 7, 2011 at 7:16:09 pm

Hi!

I've got this image that I need to cut out. I'm pretty familiar with the most common techniques, but this one is difficult. See the image:

The problem is in the dark hair and dark parts of the background. Does anyone have any advice on how to pull this off? Cheating is allowed :-)

Thanks in advance!

Do you still have the raw image? You can add a temporary adjustment layer with the brightness at the max to see the edges more clearly.

If you don't then I guess you're stuck with drawing the edges to the best of your imagination.

Use a paintbrush and paint a layer mask

That's what I was thinking of. Thanks a lot for your replies! I'll get into the hardcore brush painting :-)

Thanks again.
