    If you are using Cs5 or above the new refine edge works pretty good.

    You can also download a 30 day full trial of Topaz Remask...In my opinion the refine edge in Cs works a bit better

      I would use a combination of factors such as calculations and channel surfing. That and a quick select with a refine edge. Without trying though, it's sometimes tough to say (goes off to have a stab).
