    Extraction Program Suggestions

    Well, you've all corrupted me. I have been using Photoshop since it was invented but I had never made backgrounds. Now I can't resist.

    Problem is I can't get a clean, unpixelated, extraction. I'm positive it's my program. I'm using Power DVD (it's what I have). I'm hopeing someone can give me a suggestion of a good extraction program. I have looked around the site and can't find anything on it. If it's in the tutorial thread.... as a stay at home mother I don't have the time to check all the links to find out. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,
    Arrianna.

    Me, Personally, I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0. It has a tool called the "Mask Selection Brush" that allows you to "paint" on a selection. I've been using Elements since its first release, and I have found that with Each new version, it gets better, the only beef I have with 3.0 is that its a ram hog, but luckily I have plenty of ram. Here's a screenshot of Elements extracting an image: http://www.deviantart.com/view/8575543/

    Also, inorder to get good extractions, you need high quality source material, I suggest looking around for websites that have High Res Scans. The Anime Project Alliance and Minitokyo.net are two good sites for high quality scans.

    I already have Photoshop 7 and Adobe Illustrator. Cleaning images up isn't a problem. I want to make my own "scans".

    I primarily use Elements to extract the images

    If you want to make your own scans, you need a scanner with a high resolution (I Like Epson's line of photo scanners) and some pics to scan.

    I have one of those as well. I guess I'm not being clear. I'm trying to do video extraction. Still shots that I can extract my picture from. But I'm getting lousy resolution. I'm positive that it's the player and I'm looking for a better extraction program.

    Sorry.


    [Edit: I think I've figured out how to get a better extraction but they're still not quite up to scratch. )
