    Wohoo, I did my first photo,all black and white except my X-mas hat is red…the only thing is that I wish there was an easier way somehow to select only the hat part,because with that brush the edges looks bumpy and the furry part of the hat looks a little unnatural…other than that it is easy and clear.thank you.
