Ok, Lets hope this works. I resized (I think) and posted the pics.


Notice the picture of "Kaylee 1 small". When I cut her out, I also got the background behind her hair. She is sitting on my mother's lap who has a grey sweatshirt on. How do I select her hair and not the grey from the sweatshirt behind the hair? I have photoshop elements 9
Teresa, Somebody better than I will have to tell you how to make difficult hair selections.

If you don't get that help, you can do what I do -- cheat. I don't even try. I simply arrange the photos inside a frame. This happens to be square, use whatever works for you. This example uses the low res images you posted, it will look better when you work with your original files.

I put the cute girls inside hard-edge frames. You can blend it the way Courtney did in this montage:

I suspect she was staying away from selecting hair :D
