Background retouch

I'm sorry if this is a noob question, i'm really new in photograf and photoshop retouch.

I have a problem with this picture: the background. The hat makes harder to cut the person and put in another background, so i have to clean this background. How can i get a equable, uniform, clean background?

Thanks

Re: Background retouch

I used an extraction plug-in, in this case Vertus Fluid Mask...
The result can be even better by using a full size and not compressed JPG.

Re: Background retouch

I did a similar background removal with Topaz Re-Mask and put in a solid background with the same color as your original as you can see.

Re: Background retouch

reko,

I used color range to select the blue and make a mask. I adjusted the mask with levels.

Re: Background retouch

reko,
Go to select/color range, select the light blue color you should see the marching ants, check the invert box then ok. Select the mask icon from the bottom of the layer pallet. You should see the mask to the right of your picture. Bring up levels (Ctrl L). Move the white slider to the left until the model is solid. Move the black slider to the right until most of the blue is gone, click ok. Make sure that you are still on the mask and paint away the rest of the blue with a black brush. Hope this helps.

Ray

Re: Background retouch

Mine was done with the 'Quick Select Tool' and refining the mask as described in this Tutorial.
