You’ve struggled to change a background and it doesn’t look great.
You find masking complex shapes difficult.
Your composites aren’t as good as you were hoping.
This course will take you through ALL the methods of masking and extraction, from the marque, lasso, magic wand, quick masks, layer masks, and even more.
You will even learn a custom made method of selection that uses blending modes. If you want to know how to use masks and select things in high detail, this course is your answer!
This course includes 5 RAW files, 26 royalty-free stock photos, and all the PSDs to follow along.GET STARTED
In this lesson, you will learn how to use the pen tool to make precise paths that make sharp extractions.
In this lesson, you will learn the basics of masks, how to create a layer mask, both bitmap and vector as well as some rudimentary selection tools. You will also be introduced to the quick mask mode.
In this lesson, you will learn how to use the magic wand tool, add/subtract/intersect selections and a quick overview of the quick mask mode.
In this lesson, you will learn how to turn a rough selection into a detailed outline (of hair) and how to remove white or black matting.
In this lesson, you will learn how to master Quickmasks, creating selections using the brush and painting tools to get very accurate selections.
In this lesson, you will learn how to make selections based on colors. 3 different methods of selection by color that are useful in various cases. You will also learn how to use the focus selection.
In this lesson, you combine all the above methods and then use a technique I created for extraction that uses layer blending. Advanced, but very high-end results.
In this lesson, we take 3 of the photos we outlined and make composites. Since they are already outlined, the composites get done very quickly!
