I created a tutorial about a year ago in which I combined 2 images, starting with Lightroom and then moving into Photoshop tom create the composite. I decided it was lacking, plus Adobe has made a few significant changes to Photoshop, one being the reworking of the Refine Edge feature and renaming it “Select and Mask”.
Sometimes the “Select and Mask” function (or the older “Refine Edge”) in Adobe Photoshop doesn’t cut it. Do you find yourself trying to make a selection and mask this way and can’t get good results? Then you should check out this “old-school” technique for creating a selection, using CHANNELS!
This is the FINAL video of this series……thankfully. 🙂 At least this video is relatively short at under 7 minutes. In it, we see how to mask the hair and create a white background. Read the rest of this article…
