I suck at Photoshop. Sure I can use it and I can make it do what I want in most cases, but I don't have the patience to do half of what is needed. Extracting backgrounds is one of them. I hate it! It never comes out clean. That was until I found Clipping Magic. It such an awesome tool. And at lunch I found a good use for it.
And I only had to zoom in and make some minor adjustments to it.
