Sometimes it’s easier to make a selection of an object if the contrast between the subject and the background is greater. In order to temporarily add more contrast, try adding an adjustment layer (such as Curves or Levels), and boost the contrast significantly. Then, then make the selection and, when finished, discard the adjustment layer.

    Wow! I never thought of temporarily increasing contrast to make selecting easier. What a great idea. Thanks for the suggestion.
