    a great improvement indeed, always had difficulties with those selections. I wonder if it works with trees as well.

    yeah this refine edge is good when the image is in a white or lighter background, but when you try to create a mask out of an image with merging colors with the hair, still its not that good,you still need to clean it up to have a good mask, but anyway nice improvement on the refine edge tool in CS5

    Wow. Not sure if the same power was available in CS4, but that makes things a lot easier for tough selections. Thanks for sharing.

    No doubt that refine edge is a great tool, but even with it I get very often blemishes on the hair that I am not able to remove do you have a clue how to remove those blemishes?
