Fingers crossed that it works well.  Even in the demo you could see it wasn't perfect.

Did not seem to work better than quick select but was definitely a lot easier.

I think it is good that they show that it is not perfect, if it was perfect (conveniently in hteir examples) it would just make me think it was some clever marketing. This tool looks a lot more believable now, them claiming they had made some infallible all-knowing tool to select exactly what the user wants is not.

Doesn't seem a whole lot different to quick select and will maybe only save half a second here or there. Having said that, selections are a tedious pain, so any attempt to make it quicker is welcome.

+1. Looks like a nice step forward, some of the initial selections shown in the video would have taken many seconds to get to the same place using the quick select to lol.

Still looks imperfect but at least they show that in the video.
The current one frustrates me that it can't detect obvious borders at times.
Hopefully it will be good at that.
Hair will always be difficult.
It's good they are trying something with it as its an area that needs to be alot better.

Hopefully its release will not be like the last Photoshop CC Classic where the spot healing tool didn't work properly and froze.
I went backwards to the previous version because all the recommendations didn't fix it and I was not alone thousands have the issue.

Yes, exactly.  In the plus column, they also explain this as a one click first step.  Then, you clean it up.  As long as it speeds up the subject masking process, I'll be very happy, as this is potentially a major time saver.

As one who frequently needs to remove backgrounds from products, I have found photoshop to be good, but still time consuming fro low contrast edges.  I can use any of 8 or 10 different colored backgrounds, but there is always a area that's difficult, and colored backgrounds tend to reflect their color onto the product, then its a mess.

Any improvement to reduce the time required is welcome.

Hair is difficult to keep fine detail, thats another area to look closely at,
