4. Separating Complex Objects from Background

Tonight I didn't use a tutorial.  I worked with the magical wand to select the unwanted background, erased it and then found a new one I liked.  This is the image before the edit.  

My son, the ham, awaiting an amusement park ride a few years ago.

Here is the altered background, which I will be adding to in the next few days.  Tonight, I learned a lot about resizing and transforming while holding the shift button, as not to lose the aspect of the image.  I'm digging it!!!


  1. Oh god, that sounds stressful. Nicely executed though!

  2. When you are ready to try to add a person to a photo, let me know. You can make a picture that looks like I am close, personal friends with Jon Bon Jovi!!!!
    I only know picnik, so I am completely impressed here on day 4!!!!

  3. OMG, i love Q's face so much. now you need to add some gangsta graffiti. holla!
