What method are you using to isolate your objects on the images, to get white (or any other colour) background?

I am using Filters>Extract filter. And sometimes PS plugin MASK PRO 4.1.

You can see examples of my iamges in my porfolio, it looks pretty nice.

At the begining I was using only dodge tool, and those are not quite well. I stoped using that for wanishing white backgrounds (when I am taking photos in my lightbox).


What do you use, and what do you recommend?

-To Isolate Objects against a white background:

Photograph your object using any background, Then:

 a) Zoom in 200-300%.
 b) Use the pen selection tool to chart an exact path around the object.
     Get it perfect.
 c) Click on working path Icon in paths palette
 d) Select> Modify> Contract by 2 pixels. Smooth by 3-5 pixels.
 e) Select> Inverse-. Feather by 0.2 - 0.5 pixels. Press Delete.
  f) Select> deselect
   You now have isolated object on white background.
