Remove Picture/Image From Background

>> Open Image -> double click on the "background" name in your layers palette to turn it into a layer.

>> Open -> extract tool using Image>Extract or Option/Alt+Cmd/Ctrl+X

>> Take the marker tool and trace around the image you want to extract. Keep the marker 1/2 way on the image and 1/2 on the background. For solid areas use a small brush, for softer areas like the loose hair, use a larger brush.

Tip: to adjust the brush size use the [ and ] keys.

>> Now use bucket tool and fill the area you want to keep. Click OK.

>> There will be a few areas that have been accidently deleted. You can clean up the image using the eraser and the history brush.

>> In the history pallette, click next to the image before the extract state. Select the history brush.

>> Select a small brush size and "paint" back the image.

>> Now you can place the image onto any background you wish and do changes..
