Photoshop question

Postby leal72 » Wed Mar 02, 2005 3:54 pm

Question for you guys using Photoshop (Adobe)

How easy is it for you to remove a background from an image?

I use Jasc Paintshop 7, an I try using the selection tool but it never picks out the image clean, so I end up using the eraser to remove the background. Just looking for some hints, tips or suggestions.

Thanks

Delux showed me a very accurate method. I use the pen tool and zoom in real close and trace the outline of the image you want to cut out by clicking the pen tool around all the outside edges. This may take a little time but when you go all the way around connect to points and right click your mouse. Hit "make selection" then hit enter. then copy and paste to a new file. That should work. PM me if you need a more detailed explanation.
