    deja vu the puffin shot re-worked as requested

    Personally I'd prefer the 2nd rendition if the PP was done differently. I tried on the image that was posted and used a different approach. Using PS CC2018 I duplicated the layer and did a quick selection of the background which I then converted to a mask. You can now select the white blobs and...

    Mike, thank you very much for the detailed explanation. From what was said by kodiak qc I was hoping for something new but that wasn't to be. I'm ok with curves and use them in my PPing already. As to editing my images I'm happy for them to be used if it's for the purpose of explaining...

    Black-necked Grebe

    Thank you all for looking and commenting. As to the halo, it's one of the reasons I rarely post images on here as the site always messes about with my images when I upload them. Is there a way to keep the original file size without it being resized. My images are 1200x800 pixels and all...
