After you’ve completed your cutout and added in a new background, you may often notice an obvious transition between your new background and your extracted object. When merging images you want the final piece to look as natural and as realistic as possible. However, a reality is that often the transition between the two images can appear sharp and unrealistic. When this occurs it becomes necessary to make some additional adjustments that can help create a more seamless transition.
A great tool for this is Photoshop’s Feathering tool. You can use the feathering tool to feather the edges of your cutout object and this will help it to blend in with the background better.
Select the layer with your cutout and cmd+click on the layer to select the cutout.
If you have a layer mask applied then cmd+click on the layer mask to make the selection. Then go to the top of your screen and Select -> Modify -> Feather.
Set your Feather Radius value (1 or 2 pixels) and click OK.
