Have you ever wanted to "extract" a person from a photo, and place them against a different background? Have you tried this, only to see results that looked fake? In this class, I'm going to show you exactly how to cut people out of an image, and move them to a new background. No selection knowledge is needed. I'll start at the very beginning.
Now, you're probably asking, why in the world would I would I want to subject myself to this type of tedious work? Well, let me give you a few reasons:
This is a basic compositing course. You'll need Photoshop, preferably the latest version (Photoshop CC 2017), and a brief knowledge of layers and layer masks.
I love compositing, and I hope you will too after taking this class. If you have any questions, I'm more than happy to help!
