Having trouble finding the Refine Edge Tool in the latest version of Photoshop? This tool is really useful when you need to add difficult areas of an image into a selection for instance hair.

First using any of the selection tools, Quick Selection, the Polygonal Lasso tool, the Lasso tool or Magnetic Lasso tool make your selection. Unless you are really skilled your selection will need some adjustment this is where Refine Edge comes in. To find it you now use the Select and Mask option.

This opens a new dialog box with 5 options the Refine Edge option is the second one down, the Select and Mask option can also be found under Select on the menu bar.
