Sell some! An I have a q for you – what is your route to create a transparent background for a product image for designers to use – in my case shooting cider bottles on a white background. The route I want to take uses the pen tool because of its accurate edging but in using that I find can’t inverse and refine edge – any thoughts – Joel

Hi Joel! First, keep using that Pen tool if it’s the easiest way to get an accurate outline. You can then convert the path into a selection so that you can get to those commands you want, like Inverse and Refine Edge.
When you’re happy with the path, it’s good to first save it as a named path. Open the Paths panel (Window > Paths) and double-click the temporary Work Path so that you can name it something like “Bottles Outline.” Now click the Load Path as Selection button at the bottom of the Paths panel; it’s the third button from the left. (Or you can use a shortcut: Command-click the thumbnail of the path in the Paths panel.)
After you have loaded the path as a selection, all of the selection commands like Refine Edge become available to you.
