  8. Victoria MG on December 10, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    What do I do if I wanna go back and edit what I’ve already made transparent? I don’t want to go back in history. I just want to edit a part I accidentally made transparent. What steps should I take?



  9. Zahoor Awan TV on December 10, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    very creative



  10. Datumi Hodana on December 10, 2020 at 9:56 pm

  12. [] on December 10, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    How do I select background did u use a short key?



  13. Russell Almeida on December 10, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    Every one keeps showing ways how to cut out a photo with details of hair but on a plain background…I want to know how to cut out the photo from a detailed multiple colors background…say from one photo to another



  14. dallyborr on December 10, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    It is easy when you have one color background. With multiple color background this tutorial is useless .



  15. ERASTON DAVID on December 10, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    I have one Question



  16. Starฤฑka on December 10, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚



  17. OVERPRINTBD on December 10, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    Very essential tutorials for learner Adobe Photoshop



  18. Tom P on December 10, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    It’s a good demonstration of the tool but the model’s hair and the original background are close enough in tone to disguise inaccuracies in the cut out.



  19. Tangsree on December 10, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Nice!



  20. Max Tok on December 10, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Helped a TON!!! Thank you!



  21. Zahid Stereo on December 10, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Please cut hair to multi colors background



  22. Liana Cee Hardy on December 10, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    I’ve watched both your videos on hair etching, and both videos have been helpful however this technique i found better working for me! Thank you for saving me on this, its made me finish the job i needed to get done! Cheers for your excellent explaining!

    Excellent bro! Great tip and very clear. Thanks!



  27. Soniya Wawhal on December 10, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    I even want to know y do we use feather



  28. TheChinization on December 10, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Good tutorial and really good explained but YouTube is full with cut out hair tutorials with perfect backgrounds. All you guys should do some more realistic settings because I bet my CC subscription that less than 1% on here are professional photographers with huge studio sets.



  29. AndroWalker on December 10, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    this is your second video in which you showed uniform background. And that’s very easy to remove even for begginers. please use the different background



  30. ะกะตั€ะณะตะน on December 10, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    From a plain background even my dog โ€‹โ€‹will cut!



  31. ABDUla Ali on December 10, 2020 at 10:18 pm

  35. Fatima Aquino on December 10, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Hello, I am trying to try this method, but unfortunately, I can’t seem to see the transparent background start to appear on the picture. I can see what I’m doing in the Layers Panel, but not actually where I am painting over…. HELP



  36. Pare Chalisa on December 10, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    fantastic!,thank you very much

    Wow i like tutorial



  40. Ahamed Kabeer on December 10, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Thank you Mr. Dansky for all your great videos from which we are learning so much to work with Photoshop CC. Can you please make some videos on "how to cut out an image from a multicolored background ". I have learnt something from your on using the Background Eraser Tool and Channel method as well, but in all of them there’s a single color background, but not a complex background like a garden or any natural scenery. Hope you can understand my point, and I request you to give a video for that. Thank you.

    wow It is very amazing



  44. Pouya Saboktakin on December 10, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Very well-explained and helpful. Thanks



  45. Eigil Skovgaard on December 10, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    I think I have watched an earlier similar tutorial from your hand, also with an evenly gray background of good contrast. I understand why you stay comfortably away from the residual problems with separation of hair from a background – not least from busy backgrounds which are more common.
    The persisting problem is with stray hair that have obtained a hue very close to the hue of the background. While the human eye can distinct between hair and background, the tools in Photoshop will not distinct between glare with an identical hue adjacent to the hair and the hair itself. Our brain knows which part is hair and which part is glare due to patterns, the tools doesn’t, because guiding structures and the concept of "hair" is unknown to the machine, and AI is still a small town in Russia. I am not very patiently waiting for the perfect tool.



  46. Bojan Laliฤ‡ on December 10, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Nice tutorial, but it would be nice to make a tutorial which consist selecting hair on messy background and on background which has no contrast against the hair, becouse in 90 % of cases we are struggling with messy background. In that situation your technique doesn’t work.
    That would be nice tutorial.
    Everybody on youtube make tutorials and choose the simplest task with one colored backgroud. That is a simple task and isn’t too much useful.
    So my suggestion wold be to make a heavy task tutorial, that would help us a lot.



  47. Tariq Mehmood on December 10, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Thanks

    That’s nice! Just like the program that I’m using now which is Apowersoft Background Eraser .
