On January 22, Adobe Photoshop added a new feature called Select Subject. You now have another way to select subjects and then use Select and Mask to make further refine­ments.

To use this new feature, select either the Quick Selection Tool or the Magic Wand Tool. A new button, Select Subject, will appear at the top of your docu­ment, just to the left of Select and Mask. Click on Select Subject. You should notice your subject has been selected.

To further refine your selec­tion, click on the Select and Mask button. This will also allow you to make addi­tional adjust­ments.

The image I used in this exam­ple contains hair, just to see how it would do. The Select Subject did a good job, but I did have to use the Refine Edge Brush Tool in Select and Mask to further refine the section.

I would encour­age you to explore this new feature and let me know your thoughts.
