here is my quick edit using color range and the lasso tool to fine tune your active selection you could easily remove the background on higher res image the glow was on purpose used the glow filter just played aroud a little!!

How do you edit your selection a little bit? I mean, how do you configure it a little to add another chunk of selection, or get rid of some?

From a almost total newbie, what about using the magnetic lasso to select the border?

I prefer the Polygonal Lasso Tool 'cause it goes only where I put it?

Yeah the magnetic selection tool isn't very effective.

Using the polygonal lasso tool is a faster and easier way than the pen tool, but the result won't be quite as nice (IMO).

Titus, I'd be interested if he gave us the full size file if we both did one (I used pen tool) and you used the other method and we compared. Not like a competition lol I'm just interested to see both results side by side because this is something that is used a lot so it might be informative to see which is infact clearer.

I'm not trying to say omg the pen tool is better I want to show you it is I'm just saying we could compare.

When you select a tool as the Polygonal Lasso Tool, in the upper left there are four icons from which you can choose:

  • New selection: To Stara a new selection.
  • Add to selection: To add to the already existing selection.
  • Subtract from selection: To eliminate part of an already existing selection.
  • Intersect with selection: The resulting selection is the overlapped portion of the two selections.

to add to your selection with lasso active you hold down the shift key circle and click ,to remove you hold down alt and circle and click
after your happy you can inverse the selection and the subject is protected from any editing you may want to do to the background then press ctrl+d to deselect
