1.1 Introduction

Hello and welcome to the Ultimate Guide to hair in Photoshop. I'm Abby Esparza, and I have almost 10 years of photo compositing experience. I love the dark and surreal, and have long since learned, I have a bit of a love affair with hair. And with this course I want to pass that love on to you. This is also the perfect companion piece to my previous course, introduction to photo manipulation in Adobe Photoshop. If you wanna check that out, also on Envato tut's plus. Throughout this course, we'll be working with several different single images, that span from easy to complicated to boss mode. However, to see things in a more practical setting, we will also be recreating some of the processes I used to extract, and blend the hair and my image two of a kind. You'll learn techniques ranging from beginner to advanced, covering not only how to mask hair and a photo with a solid colored background. But also we'll look at more advanced techniques, that are ideal for extracting hair located on a busy, or highly detailed backdrop. We will also cover, how to create your very own Photoshop hair brushes, both with and without a drawing tablet. Then we will be putting those brushes to good use, by painting in dynamically lit hair. So stay tuned all the way through, so you don't miss a thing. And let's jump right into the Ultimate Guide to Hair in Photoshop, beginning with how to extract hair using layer modes.
