Isolating objects

posted on 21st of july, 2009

I was looking through some of my old photos I had on my hard drive and found some of a classic car show and traffic on a road, the images of the cars were ok but the composition and background were terrible.

I thought how could i improve these and get them accepted on Dreamstime, so I read a few articles and isolated the cars and wow i was impressed and they have been accepted.

I am now slowly isolating a few more and see how they go.

So if you have some decent objects but with bad composition give isolation a go. I'm still new so hope this helps someone.

Nice idea... I did try isolation techniques with minimal success,, Do you have any good articles to share with us regarding isolation?

Nice cars.

Your images are nice, no matter you've chose the hardest way to make it. I use pen tool for isolating. It's much faster and simplier! Try it out!

I have a blog here with step-by-step instructions on examples, if anyone is interested. You can find it from my profile page.

I used a great instruction article but there are lots of others if you search in google.
I've never compiled a step by step guide I will look into this

If you could write a step-by-step instructions article, would be really useful....I've never done isolation with PS...
