In this tutorial, we are going to discuss the Select Subject feature in Photoshop. This is a new feature available in the 19.1 release of Photoshop CC 2018.
The “Select Subject” button in the select and mask workspace allows you to select prominent objects in an image automatically with one click.
This tool is great for beginners who want a fully-automatic selection suggestion, and it is a great time saver and starting point for advanced users.
Select Subject is powered by Adobe Sensei, an advanced machine learning technology, and it is trained to identify a variety of objects in an image such as people, animals, vehicles, toys, and more.
Keep in mind that these are not perfect selections. You will have to refine them, but they are a great starting point.
My last video was all about refining selections and extracting hair from busy backgrounds.
