I do a lot of ads/fliers, covers and such for this company and I'm looking for the easiest way to remove the background from these pieces of jewelry.  It's way to hard to go around with the eraser or lasso, but I don't know how else to do it, there's so much detail.  Suggestions?  Here's an example:

Thanks SO much!

This is a good as I could get the background cleared on this piece by using the filter extract in PhotoShop7, there is still a lot of small detail that will probably need to use an easer on I didn't have the patiences. I don't know how to clear the background in Paint.Net.

Have you tried using the magic wand tool in PDN first and then using the eraser tool for what's left over?  Sometimes it works and other it doesn't. Although I'm not sure it would work with this item because of all the drop shadow involved with it. I find my items I tube never work when the item has a drop shadow to it. It's worth a try, though.

Ya...*sigh*...I've tried that too.  It takes out a ton of the jewelry itself on most pieces.  Oh well, I'll keep trying to find a better way.  Thanks, ladies!!!!!  <3
