Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting fur, part of Photoshop Selections Workshop.
The ultimate challenge when it comes to creating a selection is the fuzzy stuff, …hair, feathers and fur. In this lesson we'll take a look at an …example of a particularly challenging selection. …As you can see, this dog is furry. And what's worse, his fur is very whispy …and all over the place. Let's see how good a job we can do …creating a selection so we can tone down the background a bit more to enable the …dog to really stand out. I'll start by choosing my quick selection …tool and then I'll drag across the background in order to create a selection …of that area. As you can see it does a reasonably good …job of snapping to the edge of the dog but in a few places it does a less than …ideal job. I'll go ahead and perform some clean up …work here. I'll reduce the size of my brush with the …left square bracket key and drag into a few of the areas that it missed.…
And it looks like that's the only areas that I missed but it also created a …selection that includes part of the dog in a number of places. …
