Yes, like Laverne said, try the magic wand, I use the "quick selection tool." You can add or subtract to your selection, then once you have the basic selection, go to tool options and open that up, click on refine edge, select view in black and white, check the smart radius box, and move the slider for radius up to 250 . . . You'll be amazed at how much detail can be selected, even thin whisps of hair on a person. You should slide it back down to somewhere between 10 and 20, that's ideal for most selections. You can have PSE re-think problem areas by changing view to overlay and by using the refine radius tool (brush icon) and brushing problem areas that weren't quite selected. Once your happy with it check the box to decontaminate colors and set amount to 75% and choose how you want your selection's output (new layer, etc.) I learned this from the book I highly recommend "The photoshop elements book 11 for digital photographers" by Scott Kelby & Matt Kloskowski.
