My tutorial

Having a go at making some tutorials

Here' a technique I use sometimes I thought I might share it

This is the basic way I start this technique. It's not as refined as I do in my personal images,

but it gives you an idea about how to start on your own

Very nice tutorial. :)

I'm going to go try it out.

One thing I wanted to share with you, if you don't already know, is when you made your initial selection and then wanted to feather it, you did what I always used to do till I learned this cool technique. Once you make your selection, instead of going to the feather input box where you have to enter a number rather blindly, simply type the 'Q' button and make a quick mask of your selection. this will fill the area around your selection with a quick mask of red. Then go to blur/gaussian blur and preview the mask as you adjust the blur sliders. You will see the actual effect of your feathering instead of having to guess its effect had you simply gone to the feathering option. Once you've feathered your selection with gaussian blur and hit enter, your mask will reflect the new feathering. Then you can hit 'Q' again and see your selection outline in marching ants and perform your modifications to the newly feathered area. You can also hide the 'marching ants' by typing Ctr/H and see any changes that you make realtime to your selection without having to be distracted by the selection lines.
