Introduction: Just like blending, I had nobody to teach me how to extract PNG's. Why? Well, just like blending, I wasn't fortunate like you to find a tutorial.
We will be using the MAGNETIC LASSO to select and the POLYGONAL LASSO to clean up. There's probably a gazillion ways of extracting images, but this is the way that I learnt and is the easiest for me and might be the easiest for you as well. I find that I extract PNG's faster this way too, only taking me 5-10 mins per image, depending on its size.
Extracted images are saved NOT as jpg, because you would have just extracted in vain. It's NOT saved as gif, because while we can have transparent BG's in a gif, it loses quality. We will be saving it as PNG's.
PNG's are basically like PSD's, or BMP's... each file is humongous but you lose no quality. PNG is a universal file extension and could be read by both PS and PSP.
