Hello Community, 

 

In my endless search to find better ways to Sharpen the edges of my subject (my friend Davis seated on edge of bed, see pic below) i have found a posting that looks very promising; 'Quick Mask-Style Selections in Photoshop Elements' Posted on August 16, 2013 by David Asch http://www.tipsquirrel.com/quick-mask-style-selections-in-photoshop-elements/ . 

 

In esscence, its a workaround in elements that will accomplise the same thing (turning the area inside your slection a semi-opaque red so that you can see what part of the image you have/have not, selected) in Premiere Elements just like the 'Quick Mask' does in Photoshop. 

 

What's the advantage? It  allows me to see my image while i'm working.  

 

After my selection I used the 'refine edge tool' (per the procedure) to make the edge of my selection look better ( I had selected the number '5' in the pic show below). 

 

However, in one-of the final steps of the procedure it states to "Click the Output To: menu and set it to Selection " (which is circled in green in the pic below).  Problem being, 'Selection' is not an available option (grayed out). 

 

Not sure what i'm doing wrong.  Hoping someone with a whole lot more experience can give me a little guidence. 

 

Thank you for your time.  I really appreciate your help in guiding me thru the last few steps of this process.
