Alright, I have a few questions with this method, Alec, if you don't mind answering them. I decided this was very well the best, efficient, and quick method of all of them, so I gave it a try.
I took Jen's Champ Bailey picture (original), duplicated the layer (background), selected the copy, used ctrl+alt+x for extract with the highlighter, filled it in, and pressed OK. But your red "extraneous" background on the Bell confused me.
1) How'd yours turn red?
2) Should I duplicate/copy that layer to a new sheet and clean off the background?
Thanks man. This really helps. I can do family photos now in no time.
