Masking is one of the most common but perhaps the toughest image editing task to undertake. It's good we have a wide selection of tools with which to approach the problem, so we can choose which works best for us.

See a pretty complete list of third-party masking options with screenshots and examples here (under "Selections/Masking").

Re: cs5 mask vs topaz remask,which is the best

I've tried Fluid Mask, Primatte and ReMask.
For me Fluid Mask is clearly the better program as it's able to remove a single colored background with a few clicks (sometimes just one!), you don't even have to tell the program what it should keep and where the edges are, as it finds the edges itself.
The only thing thats bad, is that it does not save your result in a mask, so it just completely deletes the BG

ReMask has a nice interface but basically does the same job as CS5 with a slightly bit more abilities to tweak a mask. If you own CS5 I advise saving your money as the quick mask tool along with refine edge does basically the same job.

Same goes for primatte. This program is only for filtering out single colors and its not even good doing this job.
