Hi, we've had a photoshoot of a hundred images of people in front of a white board. I now need to cut out these people so they are on a transparent background. The white board was just a large white screen. I can do this successfully in Photoshop, it just isn't a quick process. It is a very slow process. Currently using Photoshop CS5.
I wondered if there is a quicker method? or different software? Anything that would help to speed up the process.
The steps I am currently using are as follows.
Using Photoshop CS5
1) Create a new layer
2) Layer - Layer Mask - From Transparency
3) Create a black layer at bottom so can see accuracy of cutting out
4) Using Polygonal Lasso Tool, cut character out in multiple stages
