A few months ago I successfully extracted a subject from a background. I used a method I found on a tutorial video. All that I can remember from the method was that the initial steps invovled coloring over my subject with a brush tool. Since then, however, I can no longer find the tutorial video. I am well aware of the existance of the magic wand and may in fact use this technique instead in the future. However, I'd like the opportunity to try out alternatives. Can anyone explain the brush method to me in detail or refer me to a tutorial/thread/etc that can? Other alternatives are also welcome. Many thanks.
