One common way to work with Photoshop is to select and apply effects to specific areas or objects in images. There are several powerful tools to help with this; the Quick Selection tool works by detecting the edges of a selected area; Quick Mask mode helps you refine the selection; Refine Edge allows you to apply various effects to the edges of the selection. If you want to keep just the selected object, you can place it on its own layer and go from there, all without affecting the original image.
