Help with selecting plug in for blending selection to background.

Recommended Posts

I am new to paint.net and photo editing . I have several photos with great background but the subject is dark because the sun was in front when the photos were shot. I used the lasso tool to select the area around the subject and adjusted the selected area but now I  need to blend the edges of the  selection to the background . Is there a plugin I can use for this ?  Thanks

And here is a great way to search for items in paint.net.


Happy PDNing :)

I'm really bad at free-hand tools, like the lasso. If you want to edit the subject of your photo and the background separately, then you might want to cut the subject out and put it on it's own layer.


Here are some ways to cut out items from pictures :


This tutorial shows how to delete the background, for your picture though, instead of deleting the background you can copy and paste your subject onto a new layer.



In this old mini tutorial I briefly example multiple ways to cut out a subject. Maybe one of the ways shown will interest you. I also give links to plugins that help smooth and/or blend the edges of the cut out object.
