Photoshop – Using the Background Eraser and Burn tool to deep etch hair
How to use the Background Eraser Tool in Photoshop to deep etch hair from a clean background. Tutorial includes using the burn tool to finish the deep etched image to blend it into a busy background and a dark background, so that the composite image looks seamless. Deep etching using the background eraser will leave a slight halo around the edges, caused by remnants of the background image. The burn tool darkens the halo, enabling the hair to blend well into a new background image.
