    Help with Brush Presets

    EYECE

      What's the best way to cut this image out?

      Which lasso tool would be best for this image?

      And also for size and hardness what number should I adjust it to?

      and resize image without pixilating. detailed explanation please. beginner. Thank you.

          OK, first, to avoid "pixilating", just don't use any pixie dust. 

           

          To avoid pixelating, don't scale the image.

           

          This particular image is extraordinarily easy to isolate with a single click using the Magic Wand.

            Thank you so much for your help! It worked!

            The silver one I had trouble with because of the bottom band. Too light.

            I was wondering if we could copy the top band and flip it and paste it over bottom band?

              Well, could you?    ;-)

               

              No, really, did you try?

               

              Seriously, some jobs are easier than others, but the vast majority if them require a lot of arduous, manual work and touch up after that.  Learn how to add and subtract from a selection, become proficent with the pen tool, the eraser, etc.

               

              Check out the Help files in Photoshop.  As always Google is your friend.

               

              Photoshop is a professional level application that makes no apologies for its very long and steep learning curve.
