Really detailed cutouts by simen91 Really detailed cutouts by simen91
In this tutorial I am going to show you how to to REALLY detailed cutouts. Mainly because I have realized that a lot of people use horrible techniques like the eraser-brush to get things away from their background. That just makes me sad, so it’s about time to learn a proper technique!

The photo I am going to cut out is one I have captured myself. It is called “Proud” and can be found in my
gallery at: [link] , but the technique can be used in ANY image! It is especially good to cut people out of a photo! Enjoy!

And if you learned something from the tut, please :+fav: it!

I used to cut out with quick selection and eraser <_>
They turned out pretty bad. This takes my rendering to a different level ^_____^
Thanks you!

:aww: Thats so nice to hear! It has been some time since I wrote this tutorial, so excuse my (even) less mature English, but I still find it highly up to date on the issue of cleaning objects from backgrounds. I have tried and tried, but never found a way to do it as good as this. And I see people do bad cuts all the time with ereaser or free-hand selections. Thanks for the recognicion man

Thanks for the tutorial, but apart from large curves, I doubt that the pen tool is best for selections. Maybe the pen tool comes handy when you don't have a tablet, but if you do, I rather use the lasso tool or paint layer masks with pen pressure. Working with the pen tool to make selections just looks pretty complicated. :worry:
Sorry I think that there are more comfortable ways to make selections. However, thank you for explaining HOW to make them with the pen tool :)

What tool is best at cutting out hair? I'm still at the noob stage in PS :(

Well, hair is really challenging, but I usually just use the pen tool and make a lot of random dots in the direction that the hair moves, then I use a bit of feather or retouch the edges with the blur tool :) But keep in mind, this will not be easy =/
