    Cheers anyway mate, should have said I'd already tried using the magic wand in paint.net and had the same problem, just wondered if the one in photoshop was better?

    Theres too many similar tones that merge so its not much use, it selects bits you dont want selecting.

    I'll give it a go, even though someone has already done it for you, I am bored and have nothing better to do, plus I like a challenge :P
