Suppose you like a document where there is a background that you want to use. However, it is an in design document. So, in order to use it, right click on that document and click on show link file. It will show to you. You can launch it after that. Now, you need to select an image that you want to use it as top of the background image. Suppose that of a lady who has a long hair. Firstly, you need to select a tool that of a quick selection tool. It will help you to quickly select what you want to select of the image. It actually works well on the hard edges but the problem is on soft edges. So, select Alt key and pull it back a bit and subtract a bit more. It is not doing a great job for the hair part. Now, you need to move on t the tool named refine edge tool. Set the compositing in a way so that it shows on black. Select the smart radius on the edge detection and adjust it to your choice which will help you to soften the edges where the edges are soft. By selecting refine radius tool, you can start painting which you think that it should be gray. Now, turn on the decontaminated color and adjust which will suit your image for you. You can adjust the edge or bump edge to make it work well for you.  After that, you need to set this output to a new layer on layer mask when you choose decontaminated color and click OK. This sums up the whole process.
