    Hi there,

    I have CS6. Having trouble removing a background where part of the background is almost exactly the same color as the subject's hair. I've tried the refine edge tool- I get yucky greyed areas in the one spot where the hair & the similar background color meet. I have tried to use channels, but I am not very skilled in that yet.

    Any suggestions would be great!

    I know you said you're not doing well with masks, just yet, but this tutorial will walk you through removing the background step by step and the process makes it far easier when working on a background similar in color to the hair.

    I am also not good on Masking, thanks for sharing this tutorial. I hope I will perfect this , on my case, I just use pen tools, then trial and error with refine edge.
