Compositing Frizzy & Fuzzy Hair

Groan…You want to change the background but your subject has really fuzzy hair?  Well groan no more as I've finally found a video that is straight forward and mostly mumble jumble free, although some basic understanding of Photoshop is helpful.  Two techniques are used, one for those who haven't upgraded to at least CS5 and the other for those with CS5, CS6 or CC.  The video will take you through the process in about 17 minutes and you can even download a copy of the image file being used.  I watched it twice, using the sample file, it worked and it took the mystery out of making this kind of extraction.  Give it a try, have some fun!
