Ive been using Photoshop for 17years and used to using the Refine edge tool, however upgraded from CS3 to CC recently and I am lost!
After starting with a coloured image, with rough and blurred edges on a white Background, then making a quick selection on it and clicking Select and Mask... the selection doesn't show up. I cannot see any marching ants, no way of knowing what is actually selected. Changing views only looks like a filter over the WHOLE image and doesnt exclude the parts I was to extract.
I do not have "Show Edge" checked and tried to change transparency without success.
Once I click ok, no changes are made at all.
I have a client job due yesterday and I am stressed out to the max so any help would be much appreciated. My machine is a desktop 3.2 GHz Mac, 2016 version. Running CC graphics suite. Running El Capitan 10.11.6
Uncheck "show edge" and move the transparency slider to 100%. You won't see marching ants, but only the portion of the image within the selection. The transparency slider will determine how much outside of the selection is shown.
