Here is my first attempt at trying to extract a critter from its dirty and cluttered background. In PhotoShop Elements I used the marqee tool to select, reverse selected the background and filled, then spent over an hour with the finger smudger, and the clone stamp set on 30% opacity in an attempt to blend the edges into the new backdrop. How do you all do it? Use real clean water maybe? Smile

You did a great job blending the critter into the background. It looks seamless and natural! It's a very time consuming task though--one I usually give up on in about 10 minutes.

I don't think they get any cleaner than this George. A very good image and excellent work with the software. Very Happy
