There are many tools in Photoshop to remove background from images but some times we have some complex images which are not easy to edit so today we are going to show How to edit the image background around lots of hair in Photoshop CS5. Just follow these simple steps…

Step 1.

Step 2.
Now Create a copy layer of existing layer by right click on layer in layer pallet then select “Duplicate layer” and then hide the original layer.
