If you want to get into Photoshop compositing, one of the first features you'll have to conquer is selections. If you've ever tried selecting people (especially people with wispy hair) from one background and placing them onto another background, you know that it can be a huge pain in the neck. But by using the Refine Edge feature and a few other tricks in Photoshop CS5, you'll start your composites out right with a good selection. After that, making them fit into another background becomes a lot easier.
This video shows you step by step how to select a person with curves and troublesome hair (that is, troublesome for us—and maybe her stylist) so perfectly that we can blend her image indefinably into a different background.

My name is Gerard Irizarry, I am a very enthusiastic person when it comes to dealing with new projects and I always try to engage in as many as I possibly can, the more challenging the better. I have always been capable of doing many different things but I know that I have a particular set of skills that are of great value in the work area. For example, in addition to designing web pages in Dreamweaver, I’m also a skilled Flash designer. I enjoy creating and working with animations within my design work.
I also am able to do graphic design with softwares such as Photoshop, Fireworks, and Illustrator not to mention the fact that I can also do video editing in Final Cut Pro as well as Adobe Premiere and also some audio editing with Wavepad although I am currently learning SoundForge.
Throughout the years I have been working closely with the Microsoft Office Applications. As time progresses these features improve drastically. My goal is to take this information and share it with my students as well as my colleagues. Our choices are limitless and our key to success is to Understand.
