Sorry for the delay in answering, but I just got back from my travels.
I thought a screen capture video would better illustrate the technique so here it is.
Obviously I am not very good at videos and was using a laptop through my desktop screen and kept using the wrong keyboard, and the audio sucks! But hopefully this is a good illustration of the technique and will continue the discussion.
Of course you can fine tune the technique and do the conversion in stages to better control what gets pulled etc, as I said, every image and output will probably require a different combination of techniques.
Fantastic! Thanks so much for taking the time to do this. This exemplifies a couple of things.
- My total ignorance about PS
- Logan had correctly pointed out that I was thinking too hard but what PS can do is even beyond my imagination!
