Here you go Scot. not the most inspiring of images - but my dilemma: How to remove the bacground without losing the bag 'edges'. I have several hundred of these to do...Cheers, Bill.
I use Photoimpact, and the "extract object" tool works well for something like this. Unfortunately, the transparency of the bag blends too well into the background, making it diffficult to automate the process. It would take a considerable amount of time to adjust by hand several hundred.
