QUICKLY Replace Backgrounds in PHOTOSHOP + SECRET refine edge in CC 2017

Quickly Replace Backgrounds in Photoshop SecretRefine Edge in CC 2017 Hey CAFE Crew, it's Colin Smith here fromPhotoshopCAFE.

Today I'm going to show you how to cut outthis lady from the beach and what we're going to do is I'm going to show you how to useRefine Edge in CC 2017.

Whoa, you say, "Hang on a second, isn't RefineEdge gone?" Aha! Actually, it's not.

It's a little secret I'm going to show youhow to get Refine Edge back in CC 2017.

So, anyway, what we're going to do is I'mgoing to grab the Quick Select Brush here and I'm going to set it to a pretty smallsize about there and I'm just going to go over here and start selecting this object.

Now, don't worry if you go over the edgesbecause sometimes when you go back and you hold down the Alt or the Option key to recoverit, it can actually get more accurate selections than it does when you're actually adding it.

So let's just go see like we went over there,if I hold the Alt or the Option key, I can go down there and just kind of clean thatup.

Sometimes you're going to go over a littlebit; there we go.

I'm just going to tap in there.

I don't like that.

I'm just going to undo that.

I'm just going to tap in there.

There we go.

I'm just kind of selecting in here.

Now one of the things, if you like this tutorialand you like a lot of different Photoshop tutorials and Lightroom, as well as gadgetsóI'vejust done a bunch of drone videosódon't forget to hit that Subscribe button, and then, you'llget my new videos that I do every single week.

So anyway, I'm just tapping there to selecton the handle.

So we've got somewhat of a pretty decent selectionto start with.

So what we want to do now is we want to goin and refine our selection.

So, typically, you'll go in, you'll chooseSelect and Mask, and then, you'll get this Select and Mask workspace.

Now, not everybody likes this.

Some people prefer the old Refine Edge.

In fact, sometimes this works better, sometimesRefine Edge works better, so let's just hit the Cancel.

So how do we get Refine Edge if we go underthe Select, you'll notice it's nowhere to be found.

Okay, here's the secret squirrel handshake.

So what we're going to do is we're going togo down to Select and Mask, which is going to take us into that Select and Mask workspace,but this time hold down the Shift key and click and voila, look at that! The old Refine Edge comes up like it usedto work and we can use that little Selection Brush here, so make it a little smaller andgo down just go in there and clean up between the feet there and give her a little bit more.

You might want to play around with the radiusa little bit to get a nice radius.

So we're looking at it against black.

Let's have a look at it again against white.

Yeah, it's looking pretty decent.

That's good enough for rock and roll.

So what we're going to do is we're going tochoose the output and we're just going to go to New Layer with Layer Mask, click OK,and boom! We've cut that out.

So, as you can see, it's really easy.

So why don't we just add this on to backgroundfor a bit of fun, so I'm just going to click and hold.

The new tab is going to open for the nextwindow, move it down, haven't released yet.

Hold down the Shift key, release and it willdrop it right in the middle.

Okay, I'm going to show you an additionallittle tip to clean up these edges.

So sometimes we get these hard edges aroundthere.

What you can do is go on to our mask thatwe've created right there and then just bring the Feather up a little bit like maybe about,man I don't know, depending on the resolution, that's looking about right there because that'smore natural.

We got the Lens Blur.

And then, we still got a little bit of fringingon here, so what you can do is you can choose the Select and Mask right there, and thenwhat we do under the Select and Mask, it just pulled the Shift Edge back a little bit.

Notice if we go too far, it's going to cleanthat up a lot that it might take out some of the image, so it just kind of bring itback a little; maybe about there is looking pretty good and click OK.

So if we look at it now, we've been able toclean up those edges.
