Post Masking difficult, flyaway Hair.

Quick and very easy "shortcuts" for changing the colour of a flat coloured or white background behind difficult, flyaway hair. This Tutorial is written using Photoshop CS4, but any version of Photoshop can be used as long as it offers the "Apply Image" option. [details]

Very nice and quick. I went a step further and used the dodge/burn tools on mask as I have to completely strip the background. A very good base for my masks. Thanks for the tip

Excellent and clear as clean glass as usual Flora. You do know your stuff; but it takes a person able to explain in plain language to really teach. You do a wonderful job.

Thank you,
Janet

Re: Masking difficult, flyaway Hair.

I know this post does not appear in the correct part of the site but I couldn't locate the link to start a new thread. Anyways, I'm looking for a photoshop expert to touch up on some photos. It's a fast and easy job, shouldn't take more than a couple hors for someone with a couple years experience. Please get in touch with me if interested.
