    big fan of the tutorials here, first time poster…

    I followed this one and made another one myself without problems, now
    I am trying it again and I cant choose the “Define brush” option anymore.

    any help? cheers.

    very nice, I make brushes for just about everything I do.

    I was wondering if you had a tutorial on how to extract hair from a multi-color background? All the tutorial I see,extract hair from white or single color background, which is quite easy.

    I think the problem to define a brush is due to the resolution. I doesn’t work if its 151 pixels/inch or more. So 150 should work. I don’t know why I would my resolution up hehe.

    That was my problem.

    this is a great tutorial. Thanks =D keep it up =D
