smart_mask_t

Yes, it's the million dollar question. If you ask Google, you might see this question has been asked and answered one hundred thousand times more than fifteen million. (15,100,000) In fact, DTG and Photoshop Tips & Tricks have answered that question three times, once each decade PHotoshop has been alive! But every Tom, Dick and Harry (Honre) who opens Photoshop will at some point put up their own tutorial on how to remove backgrounds, and the community will eat it up and all stand in a circle celebrating another "removing backgrounds" tutorial. However, it just ain't that easy -- well, until SmartMask came along. October 19, 2017
