This is a stock photo. (attached)
Using Photshop (and I'm really a nubie here) how do I extract a really clean (and by that I mean with VERY clear edges) copy of this.
I'm taking it into SWISH and trying to make the white background transparent, but I keep getting fuzzy edge artifacts around the CD's .
How do I make them sharp in Photoshop first or how do I create a nice clean transparent background so that the edges of the CD's are sharp?
Please be sensitive to the fact that I'm just learning Photoshop
