About Andrei Oprinca

Yep that's me :) I like Photoshop and Spotify 2 years ago I said to myself I will fill this with some useful info about me but I never had the chance to do it XDDD


  1. Genius mate, genius.

  2. This is another technique to reach the same result. But all have the same common denominator: it’s easy to make them with dark hair against bright background. It would require impractically lot of work to have blond frizzy hair against, say, green-yellow foliage!

  3. Thank you for very useful tip.

  6. you can do it easy with the channels and it will not limit you just see the channel that have more contrast and increase the contrast ….you know tell you get black selection and white will be not selected

    • You are wright but there is one problem in that way that edges remain so hard and you can not select every single hair, I tried Andrei’s trick with a bunch of hair and i succeeded to select them all.

  7. What if she had blonde hair?

  8. why didn’t i know this technique, it’s really a piece of pie. Thank you for sharing.
