One of the mot popular tasks in Photoshop is cutting out things, AKA remove the background. I have covered this in depth in other tutorials here at PhotoshopCAFE, but here is a round up of my 3 favoriate methods, I’ll add links to my other tutorials below.
The three methods I’m showing here are Quick select and Select and mask, which is great for things like hair and fur. Then Ill show Color range which is awesome for things like trees. Finally, Ill give you a crash course on the pen tool and why you should use it. You thinking, “I don’t have all day” All this happens in 15 mins. If you use Photoshop or are planning on using it, this is time well invested.
Which is your favoriate method? Let me know in the comments.
