Please help me - background change
I have these two pics. I am trying to remove the background on one and put the beach background on it. How in the world do I do this??
I'm at work now....my originals are on my home computer. I have done some touchup work on the beach pic there, but now I am stuck. I spent hours last night trying to get the girl cut out of the pic and moved to the beach, but I just gave up.
Any pointers would really be appreciated.
SIGH....I just suck today. I can't even get my pics to load. I'd be happy to send them to anyone who thinks they may have some pointers for me.

iheartpurses, welcome back to Retouch Pro. It sounds like you are heading in the right direction - extracting the girl and placing her on the pic with the beach background - but are having difficulty removing her from her original background. The 1st thing I would recommend you do is attached that pic of the girl here so that members can see what you are dealing with. There are many ways to do the extraction or masking but it depends on the image. Tools like Magnetic Lasso, Background Eraser, Quick Select, Magic Wand, Extract Filter, work well on some backgrounds. For others you may need to do some channel combining and masking. For others the Pen tool might be the best solution. And some images migt require a combination of multiple tools and techniques.
It would be best if you attached the image or posted it somewhere.
