    There are numerous ways. If you want good results, expect to spend some time. A little reading below will help you along. Right off bat, let me encourage you to learn LAYER MASKS and use them instead of the eraser.

    I havenīt used the eraser in years. Follow Howards advice, and use Layer Masks instead.
