My first idea was to make the canvas are larger, and put in a neutral background so the head size would be similar. I tried using the clone tool, but I run into problems with persons hair. She has a short haircut on the sides but the top is where I run into problems. I keep running into those stray hairs on top, with the result that looks blocky, for want of a better term. There is also the area at the bottom and sides where her clothing is.
Does anyone have a technique whereby I can eliminate the existing background, and get her, all the stray hairs and her clothing so it looks natural?
