I was playing around with the Adobe CS6 beta and thought that I would show a few examples of the use of the Quick Selection Tool. I used photos I took recently with the Leica D Lux 4 in marcro mode. I really love the refinement to this tool that allows you to quickly select areas you want and then do fine adjustments of that selection. In these pictures I wanted to either select the background or the subject of the photo.
In photo 1 you see the original photo as it came out of the camera.
Here is the same picture converted to a color sketch using PhotoSketcher.
