Nice demo of Quick Selection in PSCS3

Martin Evening has posted a great intro to using Photoshop CS3’s new Quick Selection tool together with the new Refine Edge* dialog.  He demonstrates using the tools together with a gradient map adjustment layer (a venerable tool that might get some "I-did-not-know-that"’s on its own) to replace the background in a photo.  Additional details, plus his downloadable PDF overview of Photoshop CS3 and Bridge, are on PhotoshopNews.com.

* What Martin quite modestly doesn’t mention is that it’s because of his urging–and engineer Jeff Chien’s late-stage efforts–that Refine Edge works not only on selections, but on channels & layer masks as well.  Seeing this demo makes me glad he talked us into it.
