Excuse me if there's already a topic on this, but I searched the forums, and no such luck..but if I did miss it, sorry!

But yeah, I was wondering...how do you guys go about extracting images? Lots of the magnetic tool and quick mask? Or maybe the almight pen tool? I keep hearing that the pen tool is the best way to go about it, but it frusterates me so much, so I decided to check out what's the best/preferred way to go about it!

Thanks in advance for your replies, and sorry if this post is closed!

Mou, I use Paint Shop Pro 7, but I use the lasso tool, then soften the edges either with fluff or eraser brush. ><;;

With Photoshop 7, I use several different methods - it depends on what type of image I am working on. Geernally, I will use one of the lasso tools (usually rectangular) to make a first pass at the image. Then I will lift it out onto a new canvas as a new layer and use a mixture of the eraser and magic wand tools. Finally, I will use the eraser at 1-5 pixel size and finish off the work.

I tend to go for sharp edges, though, so I don't use many tools that "soften" the image edges.

With simple backgrouds I usually go with the wand tool, and then the eraser to try to smooth the edges.. but most of the time, I use the extract tool and then the history/eraser combo to fix wathever I did wrong >_<
