Understanding Edge Blending – A Feather vs. Smart Blend

One of the crucial components of producing realistic cut-outs is how well the extracted object (cut-out) blends into the new background. Tools in Photoshop, for example, allow you extraction images with the extract tool or quick select tool but it’s when you drop in new backgrounds you see the cut-out sticking out like a sore thumb! Then is hours spent of your time trying to feather / soften / blend that hard edge – who needs that? Exactly!

So let us introduce to you yet another time saving function in Fluid Mask 3. Users of Fluid Mask 3 are already benefiting from Smart Blending – this tutorial will show you how to set parameters within Fluid Mask 3 that will automatically recognise and react to soft and hard edges within the same image!

Make a few adjustments, analyse the image and let Fluid Mask 3 do the work for you! Too good to be true? Nope! just watch the video, all will be revealed.
