  6. Hi Johnson, thank you for the quick response, the version of CS4 left out the Extract tool in the filter selection, but I think one can be downloaded from some where, will search (so many people complained because they left it out????) so I will try to download it and use your suggestions
    You have been a great helpl. I am learning as I go. I love digital art!!!

    Hi Barbee, may I know the version of Photoshop you are using? Is there an Extract Tool under your Filter? It works pretty well for loose hair. There is a pretty cool tutorial about Extract Tool at http://www.trainstation.cc/Tutorials/Photoshop/extract-filter-tutorial.html

    One tip on before using Extract tool, you may adjust the Levels to create a better contrast between the hair and background. Hope this helps!

  8. Hi Johnson thank you so much for the textures, and while I am writing
    have you or know of a good tutioral for removing a person that has whispy fly away hair. I have tried several not good results.
    One was using the channels (mask) but her directions were not clear.
    I find that so many times, but not yours like in the watercolor painting.
    look forward to hear from you,Barbee
