Things have changed when it comes to removing objects from their backgrounds, extracting, masking or whatever you would like to call it. It's time to get new school. This tutorial shows you how to use the quick select, refine Edge tools. I know that I'm using a white background here (woudn't you shoot against a simple BG if you knew you were going to remove the model from her background?) These techniques work exactly the same with more complex backgrounds, and they work really well. If you get stuck with htis technique, then do the Masking Impossible Images in Photoshop tutorial.
