How to Remove Background from an image?


This is the fastest method to remove the white background from an image.


Removing the white background can be frustrating to someone that is not familiar with image editing software. It's even frustrating for those that are. Today we will teach you how to remove an image from a background properly. There are lots of different ways to do this but this is the quickest and easiest to do. 


You may want to remove your background to put your image on a custom t-shirt or business card or just a graphic design you plan to use online. Whatever the reason is, trust me we have had them all. We get a lot of request for custom background removal services. 


Let's get started removing that background

  • Open your File in Adobe Photoshop
  • Make a copy of your file immediately
  • Unselect the original file and work with the copy
  • Use the quick selection tool and use it to select the image you want.
  • Zoom in to make sure you did not miss any small details. 
  • Make your selection tool smaller to get the small details
  • Go to the top of the screen and click Select in the top bar
  • Scroll down and click the inverse button
  • Click and hold the eraser tool
  • Choose the background eraser tool
  • Make sure you make it large enough that it's over your image
  • Make sure the + sign is pointed to the background you want to be removed and right click
  • Go back to Select the bar up top
  • Click deselect
  • Congratulations You are done.


I understand it may be hard to read through the instructions so we also produced a tutorial for you available Below. 


If you are on your Smart Phone and the video is cut off turn your phone sideways.
