Very simple exercise for beginners...
Aug 21, 2012

The image above was obtained from the Studio and Lighting forum. Don't worry about its small size. Peano used it to demonstrate that if you photograph a yellow-gold object on a blue background, it would be very easy to create a mask in order to turn the background to pure white. He used the blue channel to create a mask for a Curves layer. Then he clicked the highlight dropper on the background to turn it white.

Here is the challenge. See who can come up with the simplest and fastest way to turn the background to pure white. I have two methods in mind, either of which will constitute a winner. OK, let's make it harder. You have to come up with the two methods that I have in mind. Any additional ways that is deemed just as quick and simple will get you extra credit!
