Okay here is another trick for cut outs. First use the lasso tool to cut out your photo.

I did a really sloppy job on this but I don't want to have to start over. So we are going to edit this in quick mask mode. Underneath the foreground background colors is the option for quick mask mode. You can switch back and forth from quick mask mode to standard mode.

Use the paintbrush to fill in any of the background that is not showing in red. If you color too much with the paintbrush you can use the eraser and erase it. You can really clean this up fast.

Once you have everything around the photo colored in red, you can switch back to standard mode.

Tada! Your selection is complete!
