    I would like to know How To download excersize files to follow along. I am currently a student at The Art Institution of Pittsburgh.Web Design & Interactive Media. And I would really Like to master the art of masking in Photoshop Cs6.As of now, I do have I believe, most of the software that is required for my current course. Also would like to know if I can get some input on selecting a graphic drawing tablet,and what I need to, or how to install on my pc. I have never used one before ,But I do have experience as a traditional artist,so drawing is not a problem. I am kind of new to the whole computer world so any tips or advise would be greatly appreciated. I am and will be an Adobe fan for life, or till the wheels fall off. Hats of to your amazing team of wonderful People. “Mil Gracias”……..Robert Olivas Jr……..

    I am having trouble with the refine edge. After I make my selection, I use the brush to refine the edge. I am still loosing a lot of hair, the brush is not determining what is hair and what is background, need help.

    Thank you,

    I am also having a lot of problems with refine edge. I am trying to silhouette and image from a white background. Simple enough….. It is a portrait of a business man, who needs to be inserted into a group photo. I have been working on this photo for hours, and I cannot separate it from the background without getting a white halo all around the photo. I have tried everything. I am completely frustrated. I used to use the extract tool in CS4, and it worked way better than this. If anybody can offer any help, I would be very appreciative.

    I could not make work bringing the 2 initial files from Bridge into CS6 the way you did. When I selected the 2 files holding shift and then double clicked, the 2 came to CS6 as separate tabs instead of 2 layers within the same tab file.
