Product shot - cut out
I've got a few product images, shot on greyish background which need to be put on pure white. I have already cut them out and pasted on the white. I need to blur the outside edges of the products to blend them nicely with the background now (you can see sharp edges left after cutting out at the moment).
I wonder. Is there a quicker way to do the job rather then using the blur tool and going all around the product on each shot?
At the moment I've got two layers on each shot. One with the cut out product and another one, a white layer under this one.
Thanks for help
Re: Product shot - cut out
You have several solutions to geht a softer edge.
In the beginning, after using the Pen tool, don't apply a 0px selection. You should choose at least 0,5px or it will look to sharp an unnatural ( 0px is in maybe 5 out of 100 a good choice imho ).
If you applied the path already you kann use, as you prefer, one of the blur filter like caussian blur on a low radius or go to the Mask panel (up to window-> Mask or F7 ) and adjust the feather by using the slider.
In Your case a would say, the mask panel would be the fastest solution.
Unfortunately you cannot apply half px steps... so, it's more like an "oh-shit-button" then a serious solution.
But, it's totally non destructive and editable as you wish afterwards...
