I shot the original photos in Raw format. I imported the lamp photo into Lightroom and fine tuned the color to my liking. I imported them into Photoshop and used the quick selection tool to cut out the objects. There is a white filled layer behind the Tonka truck, and behind the lamp. I used the refine edge tool for both, but I had a more difficult time refining the intricate edges of the lamp “neck” – it kept disappearing whenever I would use the feather tool, so I opted to not feather, but I did smooth the edges and increase the contrast. I still feel it is a little rough in places. Before exporting the images I resized them and saved as JPEG’s.
