Extracting Selections

Some selections are easy to do; some are like pulling teeth. That's why Photoshop includes an extraction utility. The Extract command (Filter→Extract) enables you to isolate a foreground object from its background. Even objects with fuzzy, soft, or hard-to-define edges can now be separated from their backgrounds with very little difficulty.

To extract an object, choose Image→Extract to open the Extract dialog box. If it reminds you of Quick Mask, you're right. It's more than just a mask, however.
