Blogger David Ziser used the extract tool in Photoshop CS3 to make some amazing banners for a party. He bought stock images for his background photos, then used some creative lighting to make it easy to extract his subject out of some simple portraits taken at home. Once extracted the main subject was dropped into the background image making it appear that the simple home portraits had been taken in outdoor winter settings. Check out his video tutorial for detailed information on what steps he took and a picture of the final product.
