I tried smart edge detection, but that is not working. Is there an automated way to outline this so i don't have to do it manually? I have Photoshop CS5.

Use the Magic Wand tool, be sure to uncheck the "Contiguous" option (or check "Non-congtiguous", I don't have a copy in front of me to reference), and click on the color you are trying to capture. Unchecking "Contiguous" will select all instances of that color, and not just the pixels adjacent to the one you clicked on.
