Background removal is one of the major tasks in Photoshop. It can be tricky and tiring but you can make it real simple by just using the lasso tool. In this article, we will enlighten you on the usage of right tools for right action to be performed.
We are going to begin with eliminating the background from a full-fledge image. Just so you know, Photoshop is a vast pool and it is not limited only to background removal. We will take you ahead in future articles but here we will not tell you how the basic tasks are done. So firstly, it is important to create a duplicate image of the target image.
Why you ask? It is because when you perform any changes on the image in Photoshop, the original image is worked out and there is no going back. The changes are saved on the original image and no matter how much you want to go back, it is impossible to get the real sight of the image. So in order to prevent the obvious accidents, all you have to do is to create a duplicate copy of the image and work on it so that no damage is done on the actual image.
The lasso tool has the tendency to create a boundary on the selected path. That boundary is created to select a particular portion in an image and when you are done, that part of the image is copied and can be pated to another layer. Later, all you have to do is to save that part and use it wherever you want.
Lasso tool can be tricky to use sometimes. That is why, before beginning the formal show, it is best to try it several times as a practice art. Once you think that you are adept enough to take the show on the road, just go for it. All it need is some practice and everything that can be handled from there.
Removing background is one of the casual most tasks in Photoshop. You just need to use a well practiced hand to accomplish what you need.
