    Hi, hoping someone here might have a clever idea for me here as I am looking for another way to get rid of stray hair on backgrounds without the laborious process of painting it all out. If anyone has any great tricks for this, I'd really appreciate it. You can see an example of what I mean at http://www.headshotslondon.co.uk/hairhelp.html I've circled the problem in red. Thanks for any and all help! Lynn

    The easiest way, of course, is to avoid it in the first place. Flatten your model's hair before you shoot.

    If it's too late, the I'd think the best way would be to use the clone tool to paint the background over the stay hair. At some points, it may be easier to clone some hair outward, to fill in the gaps. With a lot of things, doing it quickly and doing a good job if it, are two separate things.

    Try the patch tool, I use it to do that all the time with great results!
