Some of you make it seem so easy to cut out pictures. I use the three different lassos, the magic wand, and just a plain old eraser. Any tips on how to make it easier?

I use the extract feature then the eraser to get whatever it didn't.

I mostly use the eraser with a bright background

if you have a good quality pic it will be easier to cutout stuff...imo the best tool to use is the magnetic lasso tool...

What's the extract feature?

Filter and then extract you color the areas you want to get rid of and then fill the parts you want to keep with the paint bucket and it erases for you...it also works great to cutout stuff

I tried it and it came out all choppy on the edges.

That's when you use the eraser to finish it off.
