Hi Jean.

>>I finally made a halfway decent extraction - Some of the fur looks good and other parts not so but at least it is not pink like the one from Sunday. <<

Looks like you are getting there in leaps and bounds. There are some things I could pick on, but it looks like you see them too. Still pretty good.

BTW, I also see problems in my own dog on green extraction, and I have more experience. But it will serve as a reminder to me about what I overlooked.

Post extraction (via any method) - the use of the clone stamp tool in Color blend mode or a layer in Color blend mode is good for touching up the edge in some cases. As you do not have to worry about messing up detail, one can be pretty rough n ready with the clone work taking colour from inside the image. This is very handy when objects take on edge reflections of their surrounds, which then look weird when the object is taken out of the background.

Then there is the defringe command, which is more for manual masking than the Extract tool (which uses it's own built in edge method).

More on the subject of masking/extraction:

Sandra, Andrew and Stephen, Thanks for all the links. Sandra, I read about the Smudge - but don't have it hope it comes with elements. Stephen, The last link you sent has everything anyone could ever want about extraction - So, looks like I will be reading for the next couple of weeks. Had to grin to myself after I pulled up Stephen's link - as if he was quietly saying - "Here it is girl - all you could want to know about cloning - so stop your boohooing"! - sooo much in there it is hard to know what to pick. After reading some of this it is like you all are talking a second language. - How long have you guys been doing this? -- I have looked at all your creations on the different forums and am honored to have your help. Andrew thanks for your comments on my Dog Ext. This was the original picture - he just got back from the groomer and hates bows so he pushed his head against the sofa till it landed on the side of his face. The only tool I used was the lasso to pick the selection - then copy and put a new image with the same color background and then Edit and paste.
P.S. is there a spell check on here?

This is a picture of my dog I posted earlier. I cannot take credit for the hat as Phyllis did that - but I did extract and fix fur and new background.
