    Rage it with ArtRage.Part3 advanced selections

    Ready to go crazy again with the best
    software around ?
    I hear some have troubles with the selections
    in ArtRage Studio Pro 3 . Mainly
    the delicate kind of selections tend to
    give us grey hairs.....Talking about
    hair...hair is THE most difficult selection
    to make.....if it’s not my hair, that is
    .
    What do you need? Well, besides two pictures,
    you will need the free plug in called “ghost”
    from “Flaming Pear”. Download for free here :

    Just say: "Rage It", because we already know it's art.

    Ok, now we are set. Load the picture with the
    hair, to select.(1) ;In the layers menu for that
    layer, we select “duplicate layer”. Now you
    have a copy above your picture, that will serve
    for the mask, to separate the girl from her background.

    Take the lower slider called “color”, and take out all color
    of this layer. Don’t worrie, the picture will remain a colored
    picture, just this layer get’s affected.
    Don’t click OK yet, do that in the next stage (4) where
    you alter a few other settings....
    While the menu is still open, change the contrast to a high
    point, and upp the brightness also. The intention is to get
    as much contrast between the girl,and the space around her.
    Now you can click OK.

    Now take your favourite painting tool, to paint the whole face
    black.,and other parts that are not black, that need to stay on the
    girl.
    Here are some strands white, paint those black too, the arms,
    folds in the shirt, paint it all black.
    When that is done, set your
    color to white.
    Now make the background all
    white.Take care not to overpaint
    the loose hairs, because
    otherwise they will get lost in
    the selection...

    Now it’s time to take out our filter.
    Go to :
    Edit > Filters > Flaming Pear >
    Ghost. You will see much more
    filters to play with, but I only use
    this one, I erased the others...
    Now comes the magic....

    As you can see on the thumbnails in the layersmenu, the black/white layer is
    changed to only black, the white got transparant.(9)
    In the menu for that layer, select “New Stencil From Layer
    Contents”.
    This is the reason for the filter “ghost”. Without it, you
    would have a stencil from the picture, wich is a rectangle.
    We would need a more refined stencil than just that rectangle.
    Now we have a selection with the hair.

    Import the picture, intended as background into a layer
    below the colored picture of our young lady.
    The order of the layers is seen here on the right.
    On top is the black ‘selection’ layer, below that the girl,
    and on the bottom, the new background.
    Now use the eraser tool, on a wide tip. And erase all the
    background that was in the picture with the girl. The places
    where the stencil is, will remain intact.

    Richtclick in the stencil, and choose : “remove This Stencil”
    The red stencil will go away,leaving us with the needed pictures.Only the girl is still black.
    Select the black layer, and choose : “Delete Layer” from
    it’s layer menu.
    Now you will see the result of your hard work......
