Basic question - Remove black background and mask out areas I want to include
OK, new to Imerge and having a very simple problem to understand how to remove black background. Should be easy.
I'm using Remove Stock Background with Balance -99 which does a good job outlining my subject except it masks some non masked areas (which are black) inside the subject mask. e.g. woman holding black purse on black background. I want to include the purse in my final mask.
So I thought masking the Remove Stock Background effect would be the solution, (i.e. turning the selection part white) but that does not work as I thought. It only will add to the black removal in the opposite of what I want. Inverting the brush mask does not work.
So I must be approaching this wrong.
How do I do this simple task?
