Is it me or does anyone else find after selecting out a part on a imagine then go to select and mask in 2017 PS that it never does a really good job keeping the mask where you want it to be around the edges when you return back.....
Frustrating going back and forth trying to find a happy place using this feature. I have used refined edge before and it was spot on..but this feature is driving me around the bend some days.

You can still get the old Refine Edge back in Photoshop CC2017
What you need to do is make your selection with the quick selection tool or tool of your choice and then go to Select and Shift click on Select and Mask, you have to do this from the menu otherwise it won't work.

Select and Mask is not the best tool and can be very difficult to work with sometimes, I rarely use it and prefer other methods for making selections

Here some tutorials for Select and Mask
