    Thanks Pete. A good method!

    Am I right in thinking that you "cleaned up" the floor to make it easier for the channel selection to only select the model?

    No John, it's exactly as you see it.
    When done my stuff like this, I am shooting for compositing so the floor and background will be covered by the New background and floor.
    If I were just going to use the photo 'as is' then I would clean up everything as normal PP.
    It isn't required when selecting to only select the subject but leaving a little area around the subject is helping Photoshop know what to protect.

    Interesting Pete, I use a different method for the same result on nearly all my images, I'm wondering what the content aware is actually doing when you stretch the selection out that is different to using the transform tool on a selection on it's own layer?

    Ah yes, I see. Wouldn't really apply to anything I use it for.... I always make selections outside of the subject area to widen images as my subject is normally a model and I wouldn't want even the slightest change to the model unless it's a change I want to make. Clever how it works though.

    For what I use it for, there is no pattern or detail to worry about as with what you do. That's why using grey by makes life easier.
