RE­FINE EDGE

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

Like most mon­tages in Pho­to­shop, our tech­nique here be­gins with a cut-out to re­move the face from its orig­i­nal back­ground. Mak­ing pre­cise cut-outs is of­ten key to mon­tage suc­cess, and the job has been made much eas­ier in El­e­ments 12 with the in­clu­sion of the Re­fine Edge com­mand (taken from El­e­ments’ big brother Pho­to­shop CS). Re­fine Edge en­ables you to im­prove se­lec­tions by in­creas­ing the Ra­dius along the edge in or­der to search for sim­i­lar pix­els. It’s great for se­lect­ing tricky ob­jects like hair. Sim­ply paint over tricky ar­eas with the Re­fine Ra­dius tool for (mostly) ex­cel­lent re­sults.
