your going to have to cut this person out the old-fashoned way

very slowly and carfully.

zoom into the image and use the eraser to get rid of the white halo

This post is a little old but I'll reply anyway.

chriskg - I had the same problem that CI had until I saw the tiny little dot in the ocean and rolled my mouse over it. Then I figured it out. I think you might want to make it a little more clear that it's theren and it's a link or can be rolled over.

As for the cropping. I always use the pen tool and put points around the person, then adjust and add points when needed. I then make it into a mask. this way I don't damage the original picture or have to worry about duplicating it. Then when it is masked you can use the brush tool with white or black color to either erase areas safely or add an area back. It's basically the same as the eraser tool only you don't have to duplicate the picture and thenif you mess up you wont have to start over or worry if your "Edit undo" will go back that far.

- If you try this and get stuck just let me know.

Just want to say the above method works very well, it's my preferred method as well.

Everyone that uses Photoshop has their own way of doing things. I usually use Quick Mask which is similar to erasing. If you already have figured out which way you want to do it .... get it done and let us know.
