What is the best way to make a selection?

Recommended Posts

I do product photography. I may have to cut an object out of a picture and replace the background. I have been using the selection brush tool since that's the one I am familiar with, but the edges aren't defined enough for me.  I am getting jagged edges.  I need my edges to be more defined. I am going to attach a picture to explain what I am talking about.  I am using the "focus merge" to merge several pictures together. It is causing a halo around certain edges on the picture. I have my camera on a stand it is not moving. Is there a way to minimize getting a halo when merging files?

Hi uxdesignerwt,

Welcome to the forums :)

I recommend taking a look at our refining selections tutorial found below.

Thanks

If you want more accuracy then I would strongly recommend that you use the pen tool, it's way more precise.

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

These are not my own words but I sure like this quote.
