These were some fun images to cut out! I used the quick select tool to select my daughter & frame, and then used the refine edge tool with feather and softening turned up in order to get this right. For the background on the partial image, I actually selected the background, copied the layer, and then hid the original layer. The cutout was on its own layer as well and over the new background. I followed a similar process for the full cutout, although I added a drop shadow (I like them subtle) and softened the edges further.
