    Is there anyone here who is really good at photo cutouts? I have a photo that was taken outside and all I need/want is an object cutout and transplanted on a transparent background.

    Please let me know and I will send over the photo via PM. Thank you.

    I've heard CS3 has an awesome and greatly improved tool, but it's not in the budget at this moment. =\

    PM's will be sent shortly. Thanks guys.

    Filter | Extract is a much more accurate method of extracting objects from photos.

    Do you still need a cutout of the truck? If you want I can do it (too).

    No, thank you. Geffy provided me with a cutout that worked, unless I hear otherwise. Have a cookie anyway.
