If you remember that rodeo hat I was struggling with, and then the magic wand thing, I couldn't make the cut-out thing/select image work. I carved it out manually. It's really lots easier than that.
The program--as you would expect a computer to be able to manage at least a little if a computer can get guys to the moon--can find the edges of an image if they're really obvious and just lift the thing. Then you don't have to go back and clean up all the pixels like I did with another image for a very long afternoon last week.
This is actually a skill I need for a cover I'm thinking about. Not with oranges, tho. (Why this doesn't have a transparent background here--I don't know. It has one everywhere else.)
