New Black Background

New Black Background

Taken outside, this iris blossom was one of many and the background was very cluttered. I used Knockout 2 to extract it from the background and then brought it back into Photoshop to add the black and stroked lines.

other sizes: small medium original

Beautiful! Love those colors. Next time I need an extraction, I know who can do it! ;-)

Knockout 2 is better...but I've learned not to bother trying to isolate subjects that have very busy backgrounds! Still too much work.

Very nice work Isabel. Have you compared Knockout2 with Photoshop's own extract function? Is it better/easier?
