I am using photoshop to make my sigs and for the one below i used 2 layers...a backgorund and a pictures of DeAngelo Hall....well when i cut Hall out of his pic i used the erase feature found on every single paint program...is this the only way to go about cutting him out of the pic or is there a special hidden device somewhere in the photoshop prgrams that allows me to cut him out safer, faster, and easier???....any help will be greatly appreciated.....thanks...:D

I use the extract feature in Photoshop. Go to Filter and then Extract. Highlight what you want and it will get rid of most of it, you'll have to clean up what it doesn't.

Byroan's way is probably easiest... I usually use a polygon lasso around the player then either copy and paste it where I want it or after lassoing do select>inverse the erase away it's somewhat therapeutic doing the latter :chuckle:

I use the pen tool. Takes some time to do cuts, and some work to learn how, but I like it the most. I used to use the polygonal lasso tool, works pretty well (and easy to learn), but I've never tried the extract thing mentioned.

If you want to learn the pen tool, go to good-tutorials.com and search for something such as "pen tool basics"

I generally make a new layer and color what I want a transparent bright color like green screen green. Then I can use that for my selections.

if that happens holding down shift will allow you to add more to the selection so you can pick up where you left off. And I think on a pc holding down ctrl will allow you to subtract from the selection.
