Sorry I am just now seeing this!!! For my cutouts.. man I have a hard time because I don't have steady hands LOL! I used to use the magnetic lasso, but I find that it tends to cut off parts I need. So I use the regular lasso with a feather of 2. Then I go and erase the edges. I go around it with a bigger size eraser at first, then use a smaller one (usually 2 px) to get into small areas (under ears etc) I have to say that I do usually enhance my photo before I cut it out though. And for heads, I don't always follow the exact hair line. I just try to make the head look rounded off instead. But your cutouts are looking GREAT! So you're doing the right things!
And honestly.. I have no idea what pallete you are talking about LOL!

Okay here's a link I found on PSE 5. It's got a whole bunch of stuff in the tutorial that you may or may not want to read, but if you scroll about half way down the page you will see where they show you how to adjust to soft light in the layer palette. They set theirs to Color Burn on the tutorial, but Soft Light is in the same spot.
Thanks! I will go and check out the link! Kim helped me with the soft light and I almost always use it now and I think it has helped make my pictures look so much better![/b]
I just reread your question since I obviously totally misunderstood what you were asking. I thought you were asking how to do soft light, not what the other options are. Let's see, I use overlay when I want to do text that's tranparent like. Occasionally I will use pin light as well for scrapbook type siggies, I really don't use the other settings too much.
