Hi! Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm an automotive photographer, and was recently asked at one of my dealerships to edit the backgrounds of the cars to look like they are in a studio on a cycle wall. I understand I can do this by cutting out the image via the magnetic lasso tool and stick it on a background, but is there a more efficient and less time consuming way to do this?

Thank you in advance!

The selection method that is usually recommended for this sort of task is the pen tool. It will almost certainly be less error-prone than the magnetic lasso tool, but, as Sam said, it will likely take about the same time. The pen tool also takes some practice to get good with it. Not everyone get along with it, LOL.
