    Hi Flora,

    For some reason, none of the images are viewable. Looking forward to taking another look.

      No images for me either. It does look as though it will be handy once the illustrations are in, though - thanks for taking the trouble to write this up!

          All looks fine now - and covers what can be a tricky subject very clearly. Good job!

                  Looks great Flora. Can't wait to try it out in PSP8 (I'm sure it will work without too much extra effort!).

                    Christine, Ed, BigAl,

                    Thank you so much for a great feedback!


                    I really hope you can use this technique in PS8 .... It's really a great time saver!!!

                      As with your other tutorials, you communicate your thoughts very clearly. Thanks for sharing your expertise on a task that can be so time consuming.
                      Although I've used similiar methods (which required more work), it seems your innate ability to describe details makes this a very well done and usable tutorial without being overly verbose.
                      Nice Job!

                        Great tutorial here Flora! You have helped me out bigtime here.

                          Yes .. I agree

                          i've been experimenting with it.... does well .... especially the tree line..

                          I cutout many things and the real jewel for me is the single chanel ... never occurred to me and will be a big help even when using the wand.

                                Our tutorial publishing system isn't as easy as it should be, but it's not that hard, either. Here's how to insert an image in your tutorial.

                                Click on the Insert icon (see insert.jpg) then do the uploading steps in the correct order (see image-attach.gif) and you're done....

                                avoiding cut-out
                                by sunkist4338

                                I was just trying out the tutorial "Avoding Cut-out posted by Ed Ladendorf. in this forum.

                                Everything was going good until I got to item 8. I just don't understand what I need to do here. Could someone read it and maybe explain it to me so I can understand....

                                by Ed_L
                                I'm not sure how much of a tip this will be to most of you, but I wasn't using it until recently, so I figured there might be others.

                                Most times, when you move a selection to another image, there will be edge artifacts showing. I used to try blurring the edges, painting the edges, and...

                                Thanks to Murray Mistermonday who suggested me to work whit 16 bits depht images, this gives a better quality mostly when I have to transform them in JPG files, but when I'm doing a selection (on the background) than I'm transforming (enlarging) the selection, I do have a strong line where before was...
