Remove Background

Tool-2

In many reason you may need to change your picture background. There are many ways in Photoshop to extract picture from object. But the most effective way to do this is clipping path. Today I am going to tell you how to extract image from object step by step. If you are completely beginner don’t worry, you can also do this if you follow this.

Get Started

As long as you may have any version of Photoshop like CS5, CS6 or CC. You need to open your Photoshop in your pc. After that open an image that you want to remove background. You may open it via open tab from file menu.

When you open this you will see many tools in left side in your Photoshop select pen tool. Don’t worry if you don’t identify it .I will help you. Pen tools look like fountain pen or older pen. In pen tools you will find many tools but you will select on top tool name pen tool.

Placing Anchor Points:

In the any edge of your picture from where you want to extract your picture put the tool, release the mouse button. After a certain distance click again on the edge and this time hold and drag your mouse pointer. Once you see the outline is exactly on the edge of the image, release the mouse. Do the same process until you end up at the point where you started your path. Once you see the starting point, click on it to close the path,

Now this time you need to do the same task for each gap of the image .Select an edge and continue do this until you reach starting point

After finishing drawing paths all around the edge of the image you want, you need to apply clipping path on it in order to get the background removed. For doing this go to the path palette, located under “Window” menu called “Paths”. Now you will see the paths you just have created are in “Work Path”, double click on it and give it a name. This way your path is saved. See the image below

Note: If you need to add or remove anchor point from any edge of the picture you just click add or delete anchor point from the pen tools and put it on the edge where you want to add or delete it.

Now click on the pop up menu in your path layer, and choose clipping path. Once the clipping path window is opened, you can just click ok, or put any amount of softness in the flat area – this is required when your image has a soft edge – otherwise leave it blank.

You are almost done. Now, if you save this  and place other you will find  that background is removed

  • Once you have a completed path that you want to use to remove the background, bring the path and layer palette from the  window  menu.
  • To select the path, press and hold the Ctrl  key in your keyboard and click on the path in your path palette.
  • Press and hold the Ctrl in your keyboard + press the J in your keyboard. This way you get a new layer which contains only the object that was inside the path.
  • Take the background layer off. You are done, now the main object remains by itself with a transparent background.
