Manip T+T - Cutting Techniques by kuschelirmel-stock Manip T+T - Cutting Techniques by kuschelirmel-stock
I was getting tired of people claiming one method of cutting was better than another. In my opinion, there's not "one right method" but the right method for the right task. Therefore, I think one should learn as many techniques as possible so you can always choose one that fits the circumstances. This tutorial/guide will hopefully help you with that.

:bulletblue: Content
  • Layer Masks with gradients for smooth transitions
  • Lasso Tool for fast cutting
  • The Easy Ways:
    :bulletwhite: Magic Wand
    :bulletwhite: Quick Mask
    :bulletwhite: Refine Edge / Refine Mask
  • Pen Tool for precise cuts
  • Layer Masks with brushes, filters, etc when it has to be fluffy
