    Well I hope you have a broadband connection. Here is a video showing how I replaced the background and fixed the "skin folds" (for lack of a better word).

    I did a lot more, as you can tell, in the final image above. Skin smoothing and adding the vignette is not shown in the video ( I would have to send you a dvd, :D).

    I tried to address the issues that your post's were about, the background and then the skin folds. Hope this helps, again, I moved along quite quickly (and it may look a little sloppy) to keep the video as small as possible while keeping the resolution decent so you can see my settings.

    The only tools I used were the "quick selection" and "clone". You will see that while using the clone tool, brush softness/hardness, as well as the opacity are very important. While fixing the skin folds you will see I used different skin tones along with different opacity settings. Anyway here is the link, sorry it is still about 50 MB in size.
