I'll be away for most of Thursday (Aussie time) (approx Wednesday evening USA time). So sorry about the short notice.  I'll catch up on all posts when I get back.  Damien.

  1. Just like finance and insurance, my brain does not want to wrap itself around gradients.
  2. I'm trying to find what I need to do to find the correct gradient. I am gradient illiterate. I use PSCC14.1. Am I on the right path? How do I get "all solid colors"?
  3. Thank you! Now, what do I do with the background that is still showing? Leave it as is? Did I not select a dark enough solid color fill?
  4. Should I have taken the 700x700 crop from the small res file? Anyway, here is the 1500x1500 from the original photo:
  5. I found your tutorial about "Replacing a background behind hair" in which the background is plain/flat. Is there a tutorial I can follow to replace the background behind hair in which the background is NOT plain/flat? I want to replace the drapes with the background in the upper right corner and retain the hair on babe and dad.
  6. Have the compatibility issues between PSCC and El Capitan been resolved, yet?
  7. Well, maybe baby-fine blond hair is transparent! I saw all kinds on numbers in the Info Panel, but not 25/25/25 or 0/0/0. I painted and painted with the white 10% brush. Here's what I have now -- which is passable, I think. Thanks for helping so much!
  8. I started over because it still wouldn't mask correctly. Now, is there some way to make Chase's hair not so transparent? I may be getting picky.
  9. Something's not working. After I copy and paste some of the blanket above the other layers and set it to Screen mode, and I added an inverted mask (I just assumed I was to do that), that dreaded area just above the blanket will not show the newly added blanket. I going to sleep on this (10:50 pm here in Texas). I'll work on it tomorrow and maybe will see your solution when I wake up! Thanks for all the help so far!
  10. OK, and so I trudge on….
  11. OK, then the white above the edges of the blanket is OK? That will be covered up with added blanket?
  12. Let's see if I did this right--when you said to add a black Solid Color layer, do I go to Layer>New Fill Layer>Solid Color? It DID turn the background black except close to the blanket/head. Should I start over?
  13. No, but it may be that that part of the photo is already black and white (curtains, bricks, etc.) It did turn the blanket a little bit gray.
  14. No, but I will start over.
  15. Damien, after I do the monochrome, 50/50/0 and invert the mask, is there something else I need to do--because when I go to paint all over the background, nothing happens. Was I to change the mode to darken or something?
  16. I found out where I should put the second set of numbers….my layers screen was not fully displayed! What more should I do to this one?
  17. How do I enter the second set of numbers in the levels layer? Sorry I'm so dense.
  18. OK, I admit I have not finished reading the new RAW class. Are the second set of numbers in the levels layer above explained there?
