        If you have a one colored background, using Color Range can make a good selection.

          Thanks everybody for your help!

          Jerry B, I don't know why, but in my filter menu I only have : Blur, Noise, Pixelate, Sharpen, Stylise and Other ( Custom, Hight Pass, Max, Min, Offset) I can't find extract. I've seen some tuto with people who use this, and the result is nice.

          Have a good evening! =)

            Extract is in the top section along with Liquify and Vanishing Point. etc.

              extract command - useful or not?
              by Kellilou
              Since upgrading to PS 7 from PS 5LE, I've noticed the extraction command and thought it would be a great way to simplify masking to create new layers. However, the few times I've tried it, it worked absolutely horrendously, with giant jagged edges, and wierd translucent spots, even when there is a...

              Hi,
              I am going to make a composition-picture where i want to put flames on it.

              The picture will be a road, where the effect i want is something as a 'line of fire' on the road, where a car left marks (sorry for bad english) with his tires. I have two possibilities:

              TIP: Non-plugin helpers for PS
              by Doug Nelson
              Got a useful program to use with Photoshop, but it's not a plugin? No problem. Just add a shortcut (alias) to that program into the 'Helpers/Jump To Graphics Editor' subfolder. Then you can use the File menu to jump your image over to that app and then come back, just like PS jumps to Imageworks....
