Assuming you are using Photoshop, try the "Quick Selection tool" as oppose to the lasso.

Or better still, use extract filter in photoshop after decreasing the shadow of object!

Good tracing nfiniteFX!

I just wanted to add something about tracing methods. So that dv3 knows what to do next time. You know the whole, 'catch a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach him how to fish and feed him for a lifetime.'

I like using the magnetic tool because it is very accurate. But I would suggest using the pen tool for something like this. The magnetic tool traces around what it thinks is the outline, if the shape is a different shade of the background, or blends into the background it goes all over the place.
