I rarely subscribe to Youtube channels - but Glyns is one of the ones that I do subscribe, I think I have yet to view one of his videos that hasn't proved to be useful - now if I could only remember all this stuff! :cheesygrin:

Cheers

My memory isn't that good no more to remember all those techniques.

I've been watching Glyn for a while now and have picked up some good points. This one however will come in handy and save time.
As I normally mess about with a mask and the eraser trying to get rid of the halo.

This is were learning the correct techniques come into it's own. I've still got a multitude of just the basics to learn.

A problem we've all encountered when doing selections and the option 'matting/remove white Matte or defringe doesn't get you the best result.
Here's a technique used by Glyn Dewis
Awesome tutorial, thanks for sharing. This saves a lot of time and gives good results.

At around 2:46, Glyn mentions Alt+Backspace hotkey to fill with foreground colour. This hotkey does not work for me. Ctrl+Backspace fills with background colour fine, but the Alt+Backspace does not fill with FG colour. When I hit Alt+Backspace, it just beeps and does nothing.

I discovered that holding Alt, keeping it pressed and then hitting Backspace twice and then releasing Alt key does the fill with Foreground colour for me.

I use Photoshop CC 19.0 on Windows 10. Nothing happens when I use Alt + Del. When I press Alt + Backspace, I get a Beep and nothing happens. Only Alt + Double Backspace fills foreground colour for me.

Weird...I use win 10 too but even with win 7 in any version of PS (I use CC2018 - 19.1.3) ALT + DEL always filled with foreground color...
