I am wondering how to remove the black curtain and replace with the white curtain on the right? I don't like the look of the black against her hair

One way, you could use Select > Subject and then a Layer Mask to isolate the figures, then duplicate a bit of the background and put it behind the figures

Just try, it's easy!

Step one: Select > Subject, then add a Layer Mask

That's fine, just ask.

(You duplicate the image first before working on it), so open the image in Photoshop and press Command (Mac) or Control (PC) plus J.

It should look like this in Layers,  so select Layer 1 and then Select > Subject then add the Layer Mask (there's an Icon at the bottom of the Layers palette)

(The checkerboard effect on the background indicates transparency.)

Select (highlight) Layer 1 in the Layers palette from the Select drop-down menu choose Subject.

The images of the lady and baby will be selected (have running ants around them).

As mentioned and illustrated in my earlier post, select the Layer Mask icon.

Excellent!

Now using the Rectangular Marquee Tool select an area to the right of the child and duplicate it (Command/Control J) three or four times.

Then using the Move Tool move each layer in turn to the left to complete the background (it will cover up the figures below at this stage).

Select one of the background layers (in the Layers panel) then move it with the Move Tool on the desktop .

So I still can't totally figure that out but I got this far. However it isn't super blended. Can you help blend it?
