I Guarantee I Can Teach You to Master Photoshop. Learn How:

If you have a complicated selection to make such as hair, let us introduce you to your new best friend: the refine edge tool! Learn how to master the tool and get flawless results in today’s episode!

Begin by using whichever selection tool you prefer. In this episode, we use the magic wand tool to select the sky around the lion, and then invert that selection. because the lion has so much detailed fluff, a lot of the sky shows through and the hair is not defined at all. To mend this, go to Select- Refine Edge.

In this dialogue box you can choose which view is most helpful to you. You might want to soften the edge a little, and you can do this by feathering. Play around with the contrast and shift edge as well. Keep looking for what makes the hair more defined and realistic looking- it might be helpful to shift the edge inwards a little bit.

Hint: If you’d like to use the “output to” option to output to a different location such as a layer mask, be sure that you are not on the background layer (You can hold Alt/Opt and double click on the background to change it to a regular layer).

To use the edge detection tool, check the smart radius box and paint around the edge of the hair. Photoshop does an amazing job of determining what is the background and what is the fur, and eliminates the unwanted parts of the background sky.

If you plan to put a new background underneath whatever you are cutting out, it makes sense to match the general tone from old to new. If you had an originally light background, it’s much more successful to use a light colored background for the final image.

Though this is a few years old, much is still applicable and helpful. I'm having a tough time getting consistent results with the refine edge tool. Perhaps this will help. Thanks!

I really like your video's. One question. When I click on Select, refine edge option isn't there. Where can I find it. I have Photoshop cc 2019.

Hi Aaron, I have been struggling with various tutorials for a week now, with regards to changing a background to white with edges like hair. Your tutorial on the REFINE EDGE TOOL was incredibly insightful and helpful and has saved me a lot of time and frustration. Many thanks Elizabeth

He says the fringing is very difficult to get rid of but the "decontaminate colors" option he shrugs off at 6:26 will get rid of most of the fringing. im using a newer version of photoshop so maybe the effect was less effective in his version.

How do you start the tutorial with a vector mask, and then completely abandon that method? Waste of time…
