Extraction with Channel Mask
In this tutorial Caroline Julia Moore shows how to use channels to create a mask for extracting a model and placing her on a new background.
Extraction using channels works best under certain conditions. The background ideally should be a uniform colour and the subject (or main edges of the subject) to extract should be in contrast; for example, a model with dark hair against a white background.
