Extracting images from multiple files
I'm just learning portrait photography and retouching.
I'm looking to extract 4 different portraits and create one image with a new background. What is the best way/method of doing this. 3 of the images have fly-away hairs? I photographed my subjects on a white background.
I tried the tutorial "Masking difficult, flyaway Hair". However, When I tried to copy and paste it on a new file, it just brought in the unmasked/extracted image.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Re: Extracting images from multiple files
Open both documents, select the document with the mask and the mask layer. Drag and drop the mask layer into the new document. Holding down the Shift key while dragging will position the object in the center of the new document. Remember that the entire image will be copied to the new file, not just the masked area. (For example if the masked document is 4x4 and the masked area is 2x2 the entire 4x4 area is what is copied.
An alternative would be to duplicate the masked layer and then Use Layer>Apply Mask. This will give you your cut out subject on a transparent layer. Drag and drop that layer or load that layer's subject (COMMAND CLICK on the layer's Icon) then copy/paste.
