    Can an NX user please tell me how to edit a background, like make a background completely black or white??

    I've seen this done in Photoshop. It takes 30 seconds. The lasso tool is used and the program is intuitive at selecting the subject, like the "child" in the picture for instance and you drag your lasso near the outer dimensions of it. But NX doesn't know a thing and you have to have a perfect steady hand to drag around the edges and then fill your lasso after. I have not been successful at this and think there MUST be another way to select my background, create a layer, and make the background colored. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks!
