    1. Turn on High Quality Preview and make sure the zoom level is 100%
    2. Tick "Smart Radius". It's one of the few automatic features that is just about always of benefit
    Side note: I'm guessing (sort of) that your initial masking effort was executed in great haste with the Pen or the Polygonal Lasso tool. If you're going to do it that way, much better results will come if you can find it in yourself to slow down, set (many) more anchors closer together, and use the bezier features in addition to your straight segments. This is a pretty rough starting point, so refine Mask can only improve it so much.

      Hey! Yes, this initial mask was done quickly, but also this photo is a very low res jpg, as you can see its blurry. This man will only be about an inch and a half on a white background. I have cropped many people for years, and I used to be able to use refine mask to easily and perfectly crop the hair. Using my old method, I would do it very roughly around the hair, and refine mask would basically take out all of one colour (ie the background) and hairs would remain in tact and perfect.

      Anyways, thanks for the help! I will see what I can do with smart radius!

        The fonts are different. Were you able to get the same typeface that was used on the originals? I think it would make them look even more consistent, like they were designed at the same time, if you can...
