Hi! I really hope somebody can help be, because I’m just about to put my laptop through the window. So, I worked on three images in a row, like simple stuff (threshold and a color as background on multiply). When I open those images with Windows Photo Viewer, or even in the browser or the PDF reader, Windows automatically desaturates them. Does anybody know what causes that and how to fix it? Thanks!

Hi I have an issue where once I enter the refine edge stage, the image i’m cutting out with the quick select tool (my face) is all white and the background remains unchanged.

Its like as you see here, the background is all red and John Lennon’s face is the same, for my project the opposite happens. Must be a simple setting I have to change.
