    A Hairy Problem

    Sorry for the delay getting back on this ...been a busy few days at work. I just had a very quick crack at this with the suggested brush settings + pen pressure, and this is the result: I added a bunch of hair in the fringe area, and some along the back of the mane. I think it still needs...

    A Hairy Problem

    Haha! I've been searching for that specific tool, but it appears my version of Photoshop doesn't have it :D Slowly getting some progress with the hair problem. It still looks like someone has just drawn in brown lines when I try to paint the hair back in though! Are you using the eye-dropper...

    A Hairy Problem

    A Hairy Problem

Your initial selection (before adding the hairs) already seems much cleaner than my Quick Selection method. I'm guessing that the...

    A Hairy Problem

    Thanks guys for the suggestions. dv8_fx: I tried masking method with the brush tool, but I couldn't quite get the detail that I wanted. It was better than my previous efforts, but some parts still had that "you've cut this out of another background" look to them! This is almost certainly down...

    A Hairy Problem

    Hi guys, I am having a really annoying problem that I can't quite find a good solution for. I am relatively familiar with some of the techniques for removing subjects from the background, but I am having a real issue with one area in particular. In the attached image, I am finding it really...

    Orias, reporting for duty

    Hey folks, Newbie joining looking for hints and tips on all things Photoshop. I've been using Photoshop and Lightroom for some years now (Photoshop for a lot longer), but I've never spent a great deal of time REALLY getting to know it. I learn what I need for a specific thing, and leave it at...
