Image background remove is a common photo manipulation process used by designers all over the globe for use in various applications. A picture with its background removed can be easily used in graphics, on websites, e-mailers, etc. Without further ado, let us start with our background remove tutorial in PhotoShop:
1.Open the image of your choice in the photo editor of your choice (in this case, Adobe PhotoShop).
2.Under the Eraser Tool in the toolbox, select Background Eraser Tool.
3.Now at the top you would find a Tool options bar. Select a round brush and set the size of the brush according to image you are working on.
4.Set Sampling to Continuous in the Tool options bar and select Fine Edges in the limits. It would be wise to select a low tolerance limit (20-25%) to ensure that only colours very close to the selected shade are selected.
5.Now bring this pointer close to the edge of the object you wish to retain and you would notice a round circle with small crosshairs in the centre. This crosshair is the ‘hotspot’ which deletes the background colour from inside the image.
6.Keeping the crosshair away from the object in the image, click and drag the brush through the image to remove the background. You would notice a checkerboard pattern appear on the highlighted areas.
7.When you have erased the area around the image, change your brush size to a larger size and clear away all the remaining background.
