    Advice on Creating Layers

    wonderfulpuddle

      I recently reactivated Photoshop CS5.1 from an old purchase from 2011 and I'm looking for some beginner's advice since it's been so long since using Photoshop.

       

      I'm working with an image that I want to separate into multiple layers, and I'm looking for advice on the most effective way to do this.

       

      The image contains a sketch-like drawing of an umbrella laying in a puddle with some rain falling. My goal is to get the umbrella on a separate layer from the puddle and rain, but given the sketch-like nature if the image it's difficult to capture precise lines with the quick selection or magic wand tool.

       

      Any suggestions would be appreciated!
