Cool, I like both with and without the lens flare! How did you get such a smooth line when selecting around me for the new background?
Thats always my issue ... it comes out all jaggedy!

Thanks (also for the welcome and the tip about the lens flare), I will keep that in mind for the next time I'll use a lens flare effect.

Glad you like them. I use a layer mask, with the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) i delete what i don't want (the background), since you don't want it to come out jaggedy you'd have to 'click a lot' (dont know how to explain it else) so it won't come out jaggedy but smooth.

Of course you can also choose to use the Magnetic Lasso Tool, it depends on what you prefer.

Or use the pen tool. It's the best selection tool there is in Photoshop for smooth edges.

Wow Pam, that's insanity work right there. You're probably the best re-toucher I've seen on this wonderful forum. That is TRULY inspiring me! How long have you been re-touching for?
