  1. Sorry, the background stayed erased - white and wouldn't change.
    Could you please explain if possible how to make this gradient workThank you!

  2. Only the erasing is possible and coloring of background is not possible for those whose is new to photoshope. Kindly tell step by step how to fill the background with new color.

  3. Thank you for a great write up! I've searched for months and though there are plenty youtube tutorials but they all come short. In most of those, the tutor assumes that his audience knows where certain options or features are and they are not mentioned or explained.

    Every attempt I made following those tutorials left me frustrated because I could not fully follow them, and because they either skip important steps or don't explain them well.

    Your explanation of the Sampling and Tolerance did the job
    for me! Though I need to practice more, but I'm getting better results than I ever got.

    The biggest problem for me is a photo of an older man with
    center baldness and the color of the background so close to the color of the hair, so I keep getting the hair removed.

    I spent hours on the background eraser, again, when it came
    to the part of the hair, though I decreased the size of the eraser to 5 pixels or less, and zoomed in on the photo, I
    still can not get a clean background.

    Comments are welcomed!

    Thank you again!

    Jesse T.

  4. It doesn't work...Erased background isn't colored, just rest of photography. Is that because of my mistake or there is another problem?

  5. How to replace the new gradient in the final step? Could you please explain it step wise since I am new to photoshop.
