Removing background (using photoshop)

•September 9, 2006 • 1 Comment

1. To begin, find the image with an object you would like to stand out by removing the background.

2. Now go to Filter > Extract. Slowly outline the object you would like to remain in the picture. (To get the best result, enlarge the image and change the brush size when working in small areas.) Once done, click on the fill button and click inside the selected area. Then click OK.

3. Most likely your image didn’t turn out exactly how you wanted. Using the air brush and eraser tools touch up and remove the excess.

1. Create a new 150 x 150 pixel canvas with a white background.

2. Next, click on your custom shape tool (U). Click on the circle icon. Using your circle tool, draw out an orange circle. The color I’ve used was (#FFAE00)

3. Now we need to add a border around the orange. Click on Layer > Layer Styles > Stroke… (This can be found on top of your Photoshop window). Once the Layer Style window pops up, fill in the following information to your stroke properties:
– Size: 10 px
– Position: Outside
– Blend Mode: Normal
– Opacity: 100%
– Fill Type: Color
– Color: Dark Orange (#FF7800)

4. On your tool bar, click the pen tool (). Draw out an upside down tear drop like what I have below:

5. Working on the same layer, click Layer > Layer Style > Gradient Overlay… add in the following properties to your gradient overlay:
– Blend Mode: Normal
– Opacity: 100%

6. We are still working in the same layer again. You need to duplicate this shape 7 times. To duplicate, right click on the layer, then select duplicate layer.

7. After you’ve duplicated your shape, using your transform tool (edit > transform > ) then transform your duplicated shape, horizontal, verticle, rotate 90 degrees etc untill all of your shapes fill the orange.

8. You can also use different colors instead of orange to create a lime or lemon
