Advanced Photoshop Selection Techniques. How to extract subjects from a background.

Course Outline:

In this course you will learn how to use various Photoshop selection tools and techniques to isolate a subject from its background. Proper and accurate selection is an essential skill when compositing images and in product photography. We will look at several image extraction examples. The example images will be emailed prior to the course date, so attendees can follow-along on their computers should they wish to do so.

Also, feel free to email an image you would like us to work on and - time permitting - we will process it live towards the end of the class."
