Warning: Total photoshop newb!
I recently got a cool image of my fiancee and I holding hands and showing off her engagment ring. The backdrop is the beach:
I tried to trace an image using a combo of the laso and magic wand tools to select my target. Then I used that to pull out the target as another layer. I then pasted in a background gradient.
Ended up with a really lame photoshoped looking picture. Notice the white lines where I didn't get the arms close enough and the choppy spots where I got too close.
So what's my main problem here?
- Is their a way to bet a better cutout?
- Is their a blending tool that will make the background look more natural?
I tried a dozen or so tutorials I found in google searches but they just don't blend these types of images together in any of them. Thanks in advance.
