    I am working on taking my main focus objects in PSE 6 and trying to select around them and wanting to change the background to something else. I know how to cut them or select the item but the problem is I want them to blend into the background and not have the sharp edges that I keep getting. HOw do I make them blend in and look as if they belong more?

    You might consider using the 'feather' control. Simply enter a pixel value in the box on the toolbar when you're using the marquee tool (or whatever the selector is called). You can probably tell nobody's ever taught me how to use photoshop but this is what I'd try first.
