Learning the benefits of background removal.
Sometimes no single photo captures exactly what you want: In one shot your subject might be blurry, and in the next, the background may not show up clearly. You need to combine the photo background of the first image with the subject of the second. That’s where understanding how to remove image backgrounds in a photo editor can be a helpful skill.
Machine learning technology helps separate a subject from the background.
With a single click, Adobe Photoshop’s Select Subject command automatically cuts out the most prominent subjects in an image — making life simpler for any image editor. Just choose Select Subject while editing the image or find it in the Options bar while using the Quick Selection and Magic Wand tools, and you’ll be able to adjust the background of an image with ease.
Select content with well-defined edges.
Use the Quick Selection tool to select content with well-defined, high-contrast edges. Then add or subtract from it to capture exactly what you want.
Replace solid color backgrounds.
If your image includes a subject against a white background like a studio backdrop, you can easily swap out the background using the Magic Wand tool and layer masks. (Remember, with layer masks, none of your photo editing is permanent. You can always go back to your original image file.)
