Sometimes a person as the subject is in front of some unwanted object. Think of bushes or tree branches, or maybe light posts in street scenes, or even some other person partially visible.
I know we can meticulously mask for the person we care about, then invert the mask so we can go adjust/correct the rest. A lot of times the auto selection of a person doesn't distinguish them from the unwanted other stuff. Areas around the hair are particularly difficult. It can also be tough if there isn't great contrast between the garments of the main person and the unwanted nearby objects.
I like what Super Select is trying to achieve with few clicks. It needs more evolution.
I'm used to an incremental mouse/masking with Photoshop Elements quick-select, and then refine that. I can easily clone and heal safely within the selected non-subject area. I think ON1 could eventually accomplish that with future masking tools.
Are there some workflow suggestions to get better masks today for a person with hair and clothing as the subject?
