I was wondering, how do you cut out renders 'n such? I've used the lasso, but that doesn't seem to work well, or maybe I just need practice. But is there any other way?

I assume your in photoshop?

I use quickmask, or sometimes the polygon lasso tool

Magnetic Lasso Tool all the way. What you do is make sure you get most of the background out and huge it close enough to the render as possible.

Next now that you have a short enough area take your rectangular marquee tool and take out as much extra as possible.

Now take out your eraser tool and bump up the maginifaction high enough to see it practically pixel by pixel and take out the slack

Then you have a pro render!

Tip: Don't forget to add an outer glow or 1px stroke if the render is a bit sketchy beyound repair

Learn to use the pen tool. It's like the lasso on steroids.

:agreed

Either learn how to use the pen tool or the extract feature with a quickmask. Using the polygonal lasso tool or magic wand is for quick, small, undetailed renders that are going to be covered up most likely.

..Just zoom in and go at it with the pen tool. Though expect to be at a single render for quite some time, I usually have over 1,000 clicks made with pen tool.

I prefer the magnetic lasso tool, it just works great.

OK... I hear stuff about the quickmask... Where can Sky Captain find it, and what is it. :Puzzled:
