This post was originally published in 2009 The tips and techniques explained may be outdated. When trimming out images in Photoshop, human hair or animal fur always proves troublesome and can be tricky to achieve a realistic look. Here are two techniques I use on images with both plain backgrounds, and those with a varied background tones, each achieving pretty decent end results. Technique One: Images with Plain Backgrounds The best photos are those professional studio type shots that are taken against a plain white background. These shots make it much easier to find the edges of the subject, but trimming out fine hairs can still be a little tricky.

I love Photoshop techniques that offer all kinds of possibilities for experimentation—and the following tutorial is a perfect example of one of those techniques. In this issue, we’re going to take a portrait and replace the person’s image with text (think 2009 Grammy posters). Pick a portrait that offers good contrast—a photo that’s very dramatic and dark probably won’t work as well. I’ve had the best success with straight-on head and shoulder shots, but again, feel free to experiment with all types of photos. For the best results, choose a photo that has a light background (or select the background around the person and make it lighter). Create a new document (File>New) in a size that’s smaller than your photo: the specifics don’t really matter.

Step 1 This tutorial makes the assumption that you have at least a working knowledge of using the Pen tool to manipulate Paths. Also, if you’re planning to play along at home, you’ll need to be able to scan your signature (or take a photo of it) and bring it into Photoshop. The first step in this process is of course to get your signature from the paper into Photoshop. I recommend signing your name on a fresh sheet of white paper with a black fine point marker like the Sharpie Ultra Fine Point, this will lay down a line dark enough to make the job ahead easier, and because it’s a marker tip, you’ll get line thickness variations that will make the final result even cooler. Although you could use a blue marker and convert it to grayscale later, you’ll get a better starting point if you use black. Turn Your Signature Into A Photoshop Custom Shape
