I suspected the source wasn't that great. It's always best to avoid whenever possible sources like this one where the player has been pre-cut then superimposed on a different background as the chances will be that it won't have been cut up to our standards, as is the case here. The most important part of a good cut is a good source; you can't get the former without the latter

I've given it a quick go myself from that source: https://i.imgur.com/okiK76b.png

I'm not sure it's any better than yours (most probably) or the current MP image to be honest, but I'll compare it later.

If you want to experiment further, I'd recommend using any of the pending individual requests on the request forum, the vast majority of which are easier to cut and of a better quality than the one you started out with

For those who cannot use Photoshop for whatever reason, I've been informed of a very similar free online program named photopea.com. Apart from the ability to rotate arbitrarily, it looks pretty much identical to Photoshop. In conjunction with remove.bg, you can do pretty much anything needed for cutting out, I think.

Hello, I need your expertise.
I've only been working with Photoshop for about a week.
But there are sometimes pictures where I just don't know what to do.
In this picture the sun reflects the color of the green jersey on the chin. i tried that with the repair tool, but it always looked like a mutilation.

greetings

Have a look at krissmed's post here on the 7th July 2018 regarding fixing excessive lighting. Instead of using 'darken' select the 'colour' option. You may also need to increase the opacity above 33%, I find about 66% works pretty well usually. Other cutters may have other/better suggestions but this works pretty well for me.

Hi mate, I have a Photoshop Action I use regularly for just this problem. Follow this link to download a selection of actions I use and load them into Photoshop. The one you're looking for is called "Green Gone". Just select the area on the chin using the lasso tool, play the action and the skin tones should look much more realistic

Don't just select the bit beneath the chin as the action will work only on that area. Choose the whole face, for example.

The green in his chin reflecting the kit he's wearing is now gone, no? Is that not what you wanted?

Yes it's gone, but don't you think that the skin tone looks a bit strange, or am I just imagining it because the picture has a not so good quality?

It'll never look 100% perfect but I think it looks a lot better to me from the second result!

@HRiddick Can I also improve something on the chin? I can't do that with the Green Tool, there is no change

That action only works for greens... highlight the area, go to Adjustments>Hue/Saturation, select Cyans/Blues and have a play around with the tools to see what works

Here you go,I think it's usable.Please don't ask how I did it...it was a mix of various stuff related to selection masking.Most likely I cannot reproduce it again

For sources like this in the future, the easiest way I can think of to remove the glow would be to use a black-to-transparent gradient on a new layer, and set the layer to overlay or soft light. If the white glow is still noticeable, duplicate the gradient layer, and if the image then looks too saturated you can vertical transform (stretch/squash) that layer if necessary and reduce the opacity. Then right click the gradient layers and Create Clipping Mask so there's no black gradient in the background. Example using these techniques:

I'm not familiar with layers overlay and gradients. I'll look into it today and see if I can reproduce what you and Baki did.

Cutters, I don't know what methods you prefer to create your cut outs, but I found the inside & outside matting procedure one of the simpliest and effective way to cut out images using a program called Franzis Cut Out.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKqJVbRbIRs
If it is not against the forum rules, I could pass you several portable versions of this program.

I'm using the Vertus Fluid Mask plugin for Photoshop and it's doing great to far. How Franzis Cut Out is working when you have messy backgrounds with multiple colours and shades?

I really cannot answer your question because I am not an expert. As far as I know it's a program used for professional cutting, so I presume it should be able to handle the scenario you described. I can only suggest you to give it a try.

Unless there's something really obvious that I'm not doing then it seems Adobe aren't letting us have CS2 anymore, looks like I'm moving to remove.bg permanently now then because I only have a portable version of PS with no plug ins available.

A trick for using remove.bg: If you resize the image beforehand to be 250,000px² or less (for example 500*500px, but can be any aspect ratio such as 550*454px so long as the image isn't more than 250,000 pixels), then remove.bg won't resize the image, and the cutout will be slightly sharper/less blurry.

I'm not using remove.bg very often for my cuts,I've downloaded CS5 version,wich I'm using only for making kits,but more than 10 years all or most of my cuts are perfectly done (they were not as that on start) with Paint.net software.Yes I need a bit more time to finish the cut,but since I'm perfectionist,I don't mind,and that's one of the main reasons I don't use remove.bg.

I don't support piracy,but trust me,every program can be found and downloaded for free.
