  1. Outlining an object: When I use the Flood Select wand to select the background of a simple image, I hit "delete, I get checkerboards and export as a PNG. Done. When I use the Magnetic Freehand tool (because the wand doesn't achieve the desired selection) to select the the same image referenced above, I drag points all the way around and close the selection by clicking on the beginning dot, choose "invert selection" to get the background selected and press "delete" — however, in this case, no checkerboards; no transparent bg. — why does deleting the BG work with the wand but not the lasso? — how can I get the "delete background" to work with the wand? thanks, lettergothic
  2. I want to outline this album image (delete the fabric around the edge) and I can't seem to do it. I tried the wand at all kinds tolerances . . . I tried the flood selection brush at all kinds of sizes . . . Either it takes too much or not enough. "Add" or "Subtract" seems to add too much or subtract too much. "Snap to edge" is checked but it doesn't seem to snap to the edge. I understand about contiguity (I think...) and have experimented with that as well. Can someone tell me the steps necessary to cleanly cut out this image? thanks, lettergothic

  4. Hi- I have a simple object in this case a spoon photo that was taken on a white background (see attached picture). I'd like to have the spoon appear on a solid black background- but I can't figure out how to easily do this. I've tried the selection brush tool, but it does not appear to provide smooth lines to then delete the white background. thank's for any help you can offer!
