    Lightbulb photoshop 8.0 background help
    I have Photoshop 8.0 CS and what I'm trying to do is cut out a background of a pictue and replace it with another one. The problem is I don't want the picture to look messy or uneven. Well what I'm trying to do is take the picture of a person and put them on a new background without the outline looking messy. How do I do it? I tried the magic wand, but it can't select all as a whole

    Either that, or a steady hand and lots of patience with the pen tool.
