    is this in CS4? because it sure looks different than my CS4 version of photoshop… just wondering. please let us know. Thank You.

  • It looks like that after burning the mask the quality is not good enough for stock

    • You’d certainly need to view the image at 100% to double check it. With a isolation like this one, I think it would be good enough for stock. it is very hard to see where the original lines were on something like hair that there is quite a bit of alteration possible without it looking unnatural.
