How do you change the color background of a portrait
on Oct 11, 2010 at 2:39:19 pm

I just took my first portrait photograph yesterday. My daughter has allowed me to practice for her high school yearbook photo. Actually, it came out well for a first time. I have not used photoshop that much, so I would like help in how to change the color of the backdrop I used. Do I cut her out and put her on a different background? If so, can you tell me the steps to do that?

Thanks Much!

Thank you.
These are better than the Bing searches I've done. Easier for me to follow. It should get me by until I have time to read the manual and some on line tutorials

Thank you
