Hey Folks

How’s it going?

Well we’ve reached another Wednesday which can only mean one thing: a new episode of my weekly Photography, Photoshop and Lightroom Show / Podcast.

This week I have 3 of my TOP TIPS for you when it comes to making Cut Outs and Compositing.

Making selections and cut outs when the background is quite busy can be challenging to say the least but in this episode I show you how you can get perfect results by making use of brushes and layer masks.

PLUS I show how to fake realism in your compositing and also take a quick look at Topaz ReMask 3; a really cool plug in from the folks at Topaz that can produce fantastic cut out results REALLY quickly!

Hope you like it 🙂

As always if you have any questions or comments then feel free to make use of the comments section below or email me at

Oh and if you want to give the Topaz ReMask plug in a spin, you can get a FREE 30 day trial here [Link]

Right that’s all from me for today so whatever you’re up to be sure to have a good one and I’ll catch you back here next time.
