Cutting Your Subject Out
In today’s episode we cover how to cut someone out of their background including a great tip using channels to select hair. After Kat is cut out from her background we then extract her shadow to make it slightly visible under her.
From here you are ready to place your subject on any background you desire, whether it be a solid color, another image, or a playing card.
Here are some of the tools we use in this episode.
- Type Tool – The type tool in Photoshop is very powerful, in this episode we change type direction from horizontal to vertical.
- Layer FX – From Drop Shadow to Stroke, Layer FX has it all!
