If you’re using Photoshop, chances are you‘re going to have to clip a subject from its background and work your editing magic. As a newbie, you may have been using the eraser tool to death, making memes that you hope would impress your Facebook friends and go viral. Well, that’s fine. But, ever wondered how to retouch a bad hair cut or trim a bonsai plant for a professional retouching job?

This video is your answer. Watch, practice, and repeat. In no time, you’d be editing fur. Yes, fur. And when you get so pro (or hopeless) that Photoshop is simply too time-consuming, there’s always the Topaz Remask Plugin. It’s not free, but who cares if Nat Geo is calling and you can extract the bear’s fur from the bush in five minutes?
