In this Photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to mask hair from complicated backgrounds.
We will start with a quick crash course on layer masks and the select and mask workspace.
Then we will use an image with a solid background to learn the basics. Then we will work on a photo with a busy background, and you will learn the things that you can do when masking with a photo like this.
You will also learn how to create brushes in Photoshop to help you recreate hair when you simply cannot extract it from its background.
