How to Easily Remove Background From Images By Photoshop

Photoshop is the most convenient tool to edit and manipulate images. For both personal and commercial purposes you may need to remove the background of images and this task can be performed in number of ways using Photoshop. Here is a short tutorial to show you how easily and effectively you can remove the background of an image using Photoshop.

image background removal

Step 1: Open the image in Photoshop from which you want to remove the background.

Step 2: From toolbar select the Background Eraser tool

Step3: Now select a hard, round brush from the tool option bar. Depending on the size of image this brush size may vary. Now from the same tool options bar you will have to set the sampling status to Continuous, tolerance to 20-25% and Find Edges limits.

Step 4: Now take the mouse pointer to the edges of objects which you want to separate from the background and a circle will come up. The colors within the circle will be deleted when you will move the circle around the object.

Step 5: While dragging the circle around the object you may drag it over the edges of foreground object and background but this will cause no damage at all. But, one thing you must be careful about is that you don’t drag the cross hairs over the edges.

While dragging the circle you will see checkerboard pattern in the areas which you have erased just now. Continue to drag the circle around the image and make sure you change your brush size depending on erased area sizes so that you don’t make any damage to the foreground image. For faster result try to erase the critical areas with smaller brushes first and then use a larger brush to erase the rest of the image quickly.
