eLearning Suite & Photoshop CS5 – Getting super clean edges on alpha objects

People often ask me how I got such a clean cutout of an image in Adobe Captivate 5. The answer is that it’s pretty easy with eLearning Suite 2, because Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Captivate 5 work together to make for a simple solution to complex problems like that one. Sure, it’s easy to get a clean selection when all the background pixels are the same color, but what do you do when you need to clip a foreground object or figure and the subject and the background are far more complex?

Now that Presenter (doesn’t matter which Presenter) doesn’t support embedded Adobe Captivate 5 files (because Presenter hasn’t been updated to AS3) how can I embed Captivate Video Captures, Application Captures, Application Simulations etc. onto my PowerPoints? My answer is generally … You know there is an easier way?
