Remove background around hair
Hair is one of those objects that are extremely hard to work with the others being fur and flames. If you attempt removing background around hair directly, let me assure you, the result won,t make you happy.
So, here is a simple way to change or replace the background when a person on the picture has got some great hairstyle.
Step 1: Specify background and foreground areas on the picture
Mark foreground and background as usual, until you have a decent rough-cut result where the hair is cropped into a bit of a bob, but otherwise pretty good.
Step 2: Highlight the hair
The complexity of hair for image processing comes from the fact that hair is semi-transparent. So, a binary "yes or no" mask fails to produce a realistic cut out. We need to apply the transparent mask. To tell PhotoScissors where hair is, select the yellow marker and paint the corresponding areas. Like this:
Step 3: Change the background
Now, to replace background of the photo, switch to the Background tab in the right side and change background to colored, image or leave it transparent.
Easy, isn't it? Thanks to PhotoScissors removing background around hair is extremely simple, while the resulting image looks very professional.
