To mask or not to mask?
For me the best way to create a cut-out of an image is masking, in this way the masked parts are just hiding and you always come back if you make a mistake. Also the mask is editable in some ways as we'll see in the next steps of this tutorial submitted: 5 years and 2316 days ago
Much can be said of masking: Masking is the art of using the image to select itself. Masking lets you apply the entire weight of Photoshop to the task of editing a selection. And masking, thy name is alpha channel.
