The next thing that I want to do is take a look at how we can modify the color…and tone of the track, and also work on the athlete.…So first, let's click in this clean up layer.…Then here what we can do is press the W key to select the Quick Select tool.…Then just go ahead and paint across the area that we want to modify.…In this case, I'm just clicking and dragging across the track.…It's a pretty rough selection.…In order to make it better, hold down Option on a Mac, Alt on Windows, and then…click and paint over the areas that you don't want to select.…In this case, I definitely don't want to select the athlete here.…
So I'm going to paint those selections away there. A little bit more of the track.…If I want to paint away some of the white areas, I'm just going to hold down the…Option key and click along those lines.…You can see that what it's doing is it's kind of building out those edges.…It's paying attention to where I'm clicking and it's adding this.…This can be helpful, especially if you want to, say, preserve the whites there.…
