Select by Color

A great way to select hair is to make a selection based on the color of the hair. If you photograph a person on a clean background you should be able to select the hair using advanced selection tools.

Advanced Layer Masks

Cut people out of their backgrounds while preserving all the detail from the original photo, especially in places like hair. Capture perfect detail in your layer masks, allowing you to keep the original hair even when replacing the background.

Use the Pen Tool

Sometimes the best way to create advanced selections is on your own using the Pen Tool. Learn how to use the Pen Tool to create paths and turn the paths into selections.

Blend and Composite

Learn the secrets to compositing and blending multiple photos together to create seamless, stunning effects. From start to finish, you will see how each image is adjusted and combined using Photoshop.

Align Layers

Use Photoshop’s auto Align Layers tool to make sure that all of the images line up well. This is an essential tool to know when combining images for a strong composite.

Composite with Color

Take pieces from different images and bring them together to create amazing effects. Add more details to your image and then color them so they fit within your new color palette.

Sharpen the Details

Learn how to selectively sharpen different areas of the image to draw attention to where it’s needed. Usually, the subject of the photo should be a bit sharper than the rest of the image to catch the viewer’s eye. The most subtle details can make the greatest impact.

Perfect Perspective

Become a master of angles and horizon lines. Build your composite images to the correct perspective using this exclusive technique. By creating a plan and keeping true to real life perspectives, your composites are guaranteed to be more amazing.

Follow along as we explain the correct tools and techniques to cut out the subject for this image. Create incredible selections and speed up your background cleanup.

    Absolutely awesome tutorials. I learned so much and it was worth every penny. Some exercises are quite fast and the results aren’t as perfect as Aaron’s work, but the good thing is I will do every tutorial multiple time to really understand everything. Thanks PHLEARN and Aaron for this great product. Below an image that I posted on instagram.com/digitalmofo and added #phlearn credits to it

    I’ve been working with photoshop for a few years now with no formal training. Something always seemed to be missing, but I couldn’t quite get my images to be where I wanted them to be or what I wanted them to be. I’ve now completed about a dozen Phlearn tutorials as well as a few others. Aaron has a way of explaining things that has really helped me achieve the skills I need to be successful and follow my passion. I learned how to use tools I never knew existed! Thank you Phlearn for the great instruction! Your tutorials have been one of the best investments of my life. Keep ’em coming!
