3. In the left hand panel of ReMask there is an option called ‘Reset’. Click on the blue reset option so that your image is filled with blue.
5. Under ‘Single Color Selection’ click on the red brush. When you move your cursor over to the image you will see an eye droplet. Select a color in the background and then mask out the rest of the background. Adjust the ‘Color Range’ and brush size as desired.
The Color Range slider allows you to determine the spectrum of shades affected within the image based on the main color selection.
8. Make any adjustments to your mask as desired. The high quality foreground recovery slider is often useful with trees as it helps to eliminate any color bleeding and ghosting that may be happening with the delicate and small branches.
Tip: as many as four different views can be displayed at a time by clicking on the split-preview in the upper right corner.
9. Press OK to bring the image back into your host program. You will then see that the mask has been brought onto the new layer that was created. Turn off the ‘eyeball’ on the layers underneath the masked image to see the masked layer on a transparent background.
Tip: use the Burn tool to darken light edges that stand out. This was particularly useful on this image around the dark mountain range, since the eagle and tree were extracted from a lighter background.
