[Quote:] Is there an article on the site dealing with Selcting Hair in Photoshop? Thanks wallie
This topic goes way beyond the scope of this blog. Some Photoshop books take 10,000 words or so to fully train on the selection of hair.
Our recommendations are:
1) Use the "Extract" tool when the hair is sufficiently different from the background color.
2) Use the Magic Wand to select, and continue selecting the background.
We will write a full tutorial and post it to the site. Stay tuned.
