Q&A

Q1:I’ve tried to cut an object out of a picture, but there seems to be a bit of a halo. How do I get rid of it?
A1: One way to solve this problem is to remove some of the background first, then cut out the object. To remove the background from around an object, use the Background Eraser.
Q2:I want to make a photo look more like an oil painting. Any suggestions?
A2: Why not give the Impressionist Brush tool a try? By softening the hard edges in your photo and blending neighboring colors, you might just achieve the look you want. There are also many filters you can apply that imitate various artistic techniques such as painting with oils or watercolors and drawing with pastels. (You saw how to apply some of the artistic filters in Hour 18, “Using the Artistic Filters.”)
Q3:The shape I just drew is the wrong size, and it’s not positioned in exactly the right spot. Do I have to start over?
A3: Not at all. You can use the Shape Selection tool to select your shape and resize it. The tool can also help you reposition your shape.
