This is a great video talking about layers and masks in Photoshop CS4. I think I only use about 10% of all that Photoshop has to offer, it’s a powerhouse when it comes to editing photos, this video gives you a little taste of the power!
An excellent job explaining how to remove the background in a matter of minutes inside Photoshop! He takes his subject and places her on a white background instead of the blueish color background on the photograph. In the layers panel he masks away the background. Pretty sanppy!
