    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.
    I'd rather be killed than come to your party, but if you don't invite me, I'll kill myself.

      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!

        Thanks for the feedback guys. I am worried that the E is not obvious enough. Do you think that's the case? Or do you think maybe it doesn't matter so much?

        I wouldn't show sketches. You're demonstrating your propensity to give away your work for free, without any sort of contract or agreement to terms. It's a bad precedent and it makes it more likely in...

        It took me a few seconds, but instead of AMP D, it says AMPED. It's clever making an electrical plug from the E and D. The abbreviation "amp' has a bunch of definitions, like amplifier or ampere....

        It's been my experience that when clients see rough sketches, they are typically unable to envision a sketch becoming a finished product. They also see it as unfinished and seem to feel an urge to want...
