My sincere hope is that you now have a grasp on the basic techniques and tools that you'll need to make meticulous selections and imaginative compositions in Photoshop. But masking is often an if-then proposition, meaning that it requires a different approach based on the specific images that you're working with. To that end, you should think of this course, the one you just finished, as the mother ship of masking and compositing in Photoshop. In time, I'll post satellite courses in the lynda.com Online Training Library that address such particular themes as masking hair and feathers, the advanced blending features, and selecting intricate outlines with the Pen tool.
If you'd like to see how I use advanced masking to create real-world project as well as exploit many other features inside of Photoshop, check out my course Photoshop One-on-One: Mastery. And if you'd like to get a photographer's take on this subject, check out my friend and colleague Chris Orwig's course, Photoshop: Creative Compositing. Whatever you do, I hope to see you again really soon. On behalf of lynda.com, this is Deke McClelland saying, "See ya!"
