For any of my readers that use Photoshop or Adobe products, there was a recent update to Photoshop which I haven’t really had time to play with as yet. But one of the best tools in Photoshop for creating subject selections has been updated, and that’s a big deal. This tool allows you to “cut out” anything from an image whether that be a person, an object or anything you want really. In particular, when using the selection tool to select hair on a subject, this can be a tricky technique to master. With the new improvements to this tool, it’s even easier to select a subject and their hair and make that selection look realistic.
I’ve already used the tool on one of my earlier images where I cut out the picture of Timothee Chalamet in a graphic I was making:
The selection I made was good enough to use, but I refined it even more with the updated tool and used it again in a different image:
As you can see, the improvement is a much cleaner selection in the updated image above.
More photoshop goodness to come my friends. Let me know if you’ve created anything recently that you’d like to share in the comments!
As always, stay safe and keep creating and I’ll catch you in the next post!
