    Thanks, very helpful. I have Pixelmator and have used it to cut out backgrounds before. But I was unaware of the feather option on refine selection.

    Also, I haven’t used iMovie for several years (after they ripped out my heart, threw it on the floor, stomped on it, and laughed with that f%$k*^ing update). But maybe I’ll give it another try.

      May I know how the update made you so miserable?

    As always, find your videos very helpful. Wondering if you recommend Pixelmator over Aperture, and if so, why? Would also greatly appreciate your doing videos on Aperture. I could use some help in finding my way around that program.
    Thanks.

      They are very different programs. Pixelmator is an image editing tool, like Photoshop. Aperture is a photo management tool (storing and managing large collections of photos), like iPhoto. I may do videos on Aperture in the future. But most Mac users would be using iPhoto.
