Cut out a por­trait

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

We’ve pro­vided a cut-out por­trait for you to use (down­load from www.bit.ly/start-70), but if you want to cut out your own, be­gin by paint­ing over the fig­ure with the Quick Se­lec­tion brush to se­lect it (hold Alt to erase bits if it goes wrong). When you’re happy with the ini­tial se­lec­tion, go to Se­lect> Re­fine Edge and in­crease the ra­dius to im­prove it (while in the Re­fine Edge com­mand, paint over tricky edges, like hair, for a bet­ter re­sult). Set Out­put to Layer Mask and hit OK. You should now have a pre­cise cut-out, to use for this ef­fect or for any other mon­tage idea.
