- In the last part of this movie,…we started with two photographs in Lightroom,…made some changes in Lightroom,…and then brought both of those photographs…over from Lightroom to Elements…to combine them into a blended composite.…So, with the photo open from the end of the last movie,…you can see in the Layers panel…in Elements Expert Edit Workspace,…that I have two layers, the model on the top layer,…the city on the layer below.…What I'd like to do is hide everything…except for the model and her hair…so that we can see down through the right side…of the photograph to the city below.…
So I'll start by making a selection of the model…using the Quick Selection tool.…I'll move into the image,…and I'll click and drag over the model…and part of her hair.…Now, I can't make a very good selection of the hair…using any of the conventional…selection tools in Elements Editor.…But what I can do is make a rough selection like this…and then refine that selection.…To refine the selection, I'll go down…to the tool options for the Quick Selection tool…
