Adobe Photoshop – Using Photoshop To Extract An Image From A Photo

posted by

In Photoshop, there are numerous strategies to extract images, however in this tutorial I want to show you a quality way to get rid of those annoying images you want removing. I haven’t actually come across this technique elsewhere online, so I thought this would be ideal to begin a new series of photo tips for beginners. The beauty of this method is that it uses a soft brush edge so the edges don’t seem quite so jagged.

So, the first step to take is to choose an image that you want to get rid of in a photo, and then set the foreground color to black, and the background color to white. Then, find the brush tool and set the master diameter at 10px with hardness set at 0%. The next thing to do is to unlock your layer, and then just add a layer mask on the photo.

Then zoom in close up and use the brush tool to outline the image. Hold down the shift key for the longer straight bits. I normally hold down shift all the way through to acquire a natural smooth line. I should like to mention here that if you need to select tinier bits of an image, then alter the dimensions of your brush to a size less than 10px.

Finishing that, just hold down the ALT key and click on the layer mask simultaneously. Be sure you’re clicking the mask on the layer and not just the layer. Choose the Magic Wand application with Contiguous checked and Anti-alias unchecked. Then click on the external white section which is the part you do not want to remain in the image.

Go to the toolbar and head over to Select – Modify – Expand and adjust to 5px. Next convert the background color to black and after that hit the delete key. It will probably still leave several very small areas which you don’t want on the edges of the image, so you must go back and use the 5px brush to fill in such areas so they’re black.

So, hold down Option and then click simultaneously on your layer mask to go back and fourth to view the actual image. Once you have eventually completed cutting it out, just hold down Option and click simultaneously on your layer mask and you will have finished. You’ve just managed to eliminate the image using Photoshop, so I really hope that you found these photoshop tips for beginners helpful.
