Are you asking how he cut around the image so precisely or how he took the photo?January 28, 2011 at 8:55 pm #63511
- Make sure to shoot against a solid color background. Preferably white or black.
- Highest resolution possible
Once you’re in Photoshop you’ll want to use masks, as it makes sure you don’t accidentally erase anything you can’t get back.
If it’s on a solid color background I like to go Select > Color Range to try and isolate just the background.January 28, 2011 at 9:19 pm #63513
I really didn’t do that good of a job =/ I had a job once where basically all I did was cut clipping paths (pen tool in Photoshop) around stuff. It’s a slow process, but the end result is usually better than any shortcuts (e.g. magic wand).January 29, 2011 at 2:23 am #63470
The pen tool usually has the best outcome. I use layer masks when I’m feeling lazy though :pJanuary 29, 2011 at 5:08 am #63474
Get Vertus Fluid Max. Its what all the big guns use for cutting shapes from images. Its amazingJanuary 29, 2011 at 10:00 am #63477
what about using photoshop’s extract feature? filter > extract… it allows you to highlight around the edges then it has a a feature that cleans up the edges quite nicely. I reccomend using the smallest highliter size possible. There are also several videos on youtube about the subject.
