Need a little help, I'm trying to experiment with changing the color of a background. Keep in mind, i haven't had PS very long so still learning what tools are and how to use them. I made a separate layer and used the magnetic laso tool to select the background. One problem I have, is I cant have the image zoomed in close enough to be able to follow the line the way I want. If I zoom in, you cant move the zoomed in area with out selecting points across my image. I know im doing something wrong but dont know what. You can see where the background color still shows a little along the elastic of the material draped over the shoe. It also looks like I just cut and pasted the image on a colored background, or it does to me, could be wrong though. I think it needs to blur/fade somehow, again, not that familiar with PS. I used the healing brush some on the leg to cover a couple blemishes. Looks like I did a decent job there [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Any help pointing me in the right direction is appreciated. btw I'm using Photoshop CS.



Thanks,
DeanP

Just hit the space bar to change the cursor to the hand and move the zoomed in pic to where ever you want. Just remember to go back to the point you left of before releasing the space bar. Usually you are at that point anyway.

Wait...are you just changing the color? From looking at your portfolio, I am assuming this shot was done against a yellow BG...already solid. If this is the case, there is no need to do the selection by hand. You could probably just use the "color replace" function.

Dean when you change the background color dont forget the yellow spill on the bottom of her shoe.
