    I tried this and it works for figures on light background but it is not so good for darker images on a black background 🙁 do you have a tutorial for how to cut out an image from a dark background like this works? especially for jpeg artifact pictures that I want to take the main part of the image out?

    Cool tutorial,I downloaded the image and followed it, also instead of duplicating the image you can also use inner shadow and inner glow from layer styles then create layer and remove from the body. I learnt this from your other tutorials 😀

    I'm not sure if you can comprehend my request, but is it possible to make a tutorial about the appropriate size an object is supposed to placed? It's alittle troublesome for me. PTC (Photoshop Training Channel) has it but its difficult to understand.
