    Default "Extract" Extraction tutorial - Photoshop

    This is an alternative way of how to extract images in Photoshop using the "Filter -> Extract" tool.

    Works in any Photoshop 7 or more (dunno about less)

    I'll be using this image as the example (reduced the image size):

    Image artist is Murakami Suigun.


    Ok, after opening the scan, duplicate its layer (we don't want to work on the original one, in case something gets ruined and need to be re-extracted) and got to Filter -> Extract.



    A similar window will open, select the magnifying tool and magnify as much as possible (check the following screenshot, I zoomed at the left head part).
    Now, select the brush, set the brush size (I usually use either 3 or 5) and go slowly around the border with it. Remember, both parts must be selected, the cut-off part and the remaining part (see the screenshot for example).



    When you're done with all the scan (this will take quite a lot of time ) Select the Fill tool, and color all the parts that you want to keep (it's important that all parts all selected!)



    When you're done with that, select the Smooth (under extraction, on the right side - I usually use 3, you can change that later when previewing) and hit preview.



    Slowly go around the borders, and if you notice a bad extracted part, use the next 2 tools to correct it.
    - Clean up tool (C): Lets you erase the redundant part.
    - Edge Touchup tool (T): lets you fixed the too much extracted part; This tool is quite ”bothering" one, since it doesn't always listen to you xD And sometimes it deletes instead of retouch the image xD. It needs quite a lot practice to be used, for start I suggest holding the ctrl key when using it.



    When done with the extraction, just hit OK (and be sure that none of force background stuff is selected )

    The finished result can be found here


    If I'm not too lazy, I'll also make an in-image tutorial ^_^;;

    I was using Corel PHOTO-PAINT to do the extraction. I didn't know I could do those same steps in Photoshop! Oo; (still learning xP ).
    Thanks for the tutorial. ^^

    Now, I admit I'm just learning, but shouldn't you set the, what was it, the Smart Highlighter function too? I haven't used it but once and well, I guess anime pics would work better than a screenshot of a live movie, lol.
    PS this is just a comment from a newbie to extracting so just ignore it if it sounds stupid.

    Ahh. Good enough for me then. Hopefully once I get better at extracting, I'll start posting some of them here. Oh, thanks for the tutorial.

    Omigosh! Thanks so much! This is a HUGE help cause I was clueless when I first got Photoshop and went into that extraction Wizard (no pun intended). I was all like "do I color everything with the pen but then I can't extract it unless I use that bucket fill crap." Cause I'm a retard.

    Anyway... yeah... thanks. oh I have a question. What is that format that you save it in that doesn't turn it into a rectangle and keeps the shape of the rendor for uploading onto image hosts and what not?

    Thank you again.

    Hi,

    I used to extract my images before I implemented them in any further work (wallpaper for this example, but of course the same for sigs etc.). But since my last two wallpapers I use a different approach.

    During the whole process, it is important that you leave the chara in a separate layer. I actually never work on the real picture layer but create a layer mask for the extraction.
    At first, I only extract the chara very roughly. For that I switch to paint on the layer mask. Using the lasso tool, I roughly select all that is not part of the character and fill the selected part of the layer mask with pure black, thus removing this part of the image from the visible area.

    Then I switch away from the layer mask and move on to the wallpaper creation process. I actually leave the extraction as one of the very last steps, when only some final touch ups are needed for the wall.

    Then I switch back to the layer mask of the chara layer. I use a normal brush with a pure black color to hide all unwanted parts of the chara. For finer details I use a 5px soft brush, for long smooth lines a 10-30px soft brush.

    This approach has two big advantages.
    First, you can always undo your work. You only have to paint with pure white on your layer mask to show previous hidden parts.
    Second, you do the detail work of the extraction on the real background it is later used on. This is really helpful since you can remove exactly the right amount of the chara surroundings to complement the background color.

    Of course, this doesn't help you at all if you want to share your extraction with someone else, but it yields really nice results with relative easy work for your own creations.

    For the work with the brushes it helps a tremendous amount if you have a graphic tablet (or really good skills with your mouse).

    Anyway, just my .

    Have fun,
    Elfenstein.

    Thank you elfenstien for your great tips. I also have a tip to add to this ...

    When doing extractions, always create a new layer beneath your extraction layer and fill it with black and then fill it with white. Trust me, it saves you a lot of trouble in the long run and I'll tell you why. ^_^

    The reason why you do this is because when you're working on a transparent background with your extraction, ie - In Photoshop, you can't see if you may have missed some edges. So by filling in the new background layer with a black and then a white color, you can see if you missed any edges or what doesn't look right so you can adjust it.

    Hopefully this helps as well. And this only works if your graphic program supports and can use layers. Let's see more extractions.

    Wow I had no clue you could do that... although I am a complete newbie at using Photoshop. I always used to try to use the Magic Eraser tool to remove the background and then touched up the edges, but "Extract" and using Elfenstein's method sound like they would give much better results. Thanks!

    When doing extractions, always create a new layer beneath your extraction layer and fill it with black and then fill it with white. Trust me, it saves you a lot of trouble in the long run and I'll tell you why. ^_^

    The reason why you do this is because when you're working on a transparent background with your extraction, ie - In Photoshop, you can't see if you may have missed some edges. So by filling in the new background layer with a black and then a white color, you can see if you missed any edges or what doesn't look right so you can adjust it.

    Hopefully this helps as well. And this only works if your graphic program supports and can use layers. Let's see more extractions.
    A little shortcut to add onto that is black, then white, and ctrl+z will alternate between black and white so you don't need to have to use the paint bucket to repaint the background if you feel you've missed something.

    (ctrl+z alternates between undoing and redoing your last actions if people don't know that. ctrl+alt+z is a shortcut to undo the last move... can't remember what the redo shortcut is.)

    Just saves a bit of time, and it works (for me at least.)

    and - great tutorial Wiz. I need to try that myself, since I am still a noob at Photoshop. XD.
