Object-aware Refine Edge

A few years back I helped to advise on the creation of the Select and Mask workspace in Photoshop that allows users to select objects in images.  Photoshop added a new mode that allows for improved extraction of hair for complex images.  This mode is a follow on to our Deep Image Matting paper from CVPR 2017.
