When I am working on projects at work, a lot of clients send me assets which are on backgrounds and I quite often have to spend a lot of time removing them.
I currently do this by either using the Magic Wand Tool and selecting as much as I can to remove or by using the marquee tool and reducing the amount I have to remove and then I usually use a soft eraser to tidy things up. This is quite time consuming..
I was wondering what ways or any other efficient means that you have of removing things from a background, i.e an image like the below without it looking as if its fuzzy around the edges, or as if there is an outer glow on the person or without leaving any rough edges etc:
Any suggestions/hints and tips you have would be really useful. I am just looking to see if there is any way in which I could perhaps do this more efficiently.
