How do I remove the background in Photoshop cs5 ?

How to mask out something in Photoshop so I’m gonna find the easiest way to do this because we all want to have a short easy way so you’re gonna select your layer up here and you’re gonna go up here to the toolbar and you’re gonna find a tool called quick selection tool and if you don’t see that right there you’re gonna click your mouse and hold it there and you’ll see a list of tools right here like the magic wand tool and in this case.

We’re gonna have this quick selection tool and instead of going up there and clicking the weekend shorten that and use keyboard shortcuts and the keyboard shortcut for that tool is w so just click that and see y’all click right here click W and you’ll get there so yeah once you have that tool selected you’re gonna select your layer and you’re gonna go in here and um drag and click and drag and so you have the whole thing selected.

So we want to put a white background behind this leaf and the way we’re gonna do that is going down here to this icon where it says to add a layer mask and click that and we have a transparent background.

but like I said we want a white one so we’re gonna go down here and you’ll see the icon and it creates a new layer and then we’ll just take that layer and drag it under this and then we want to change that layer to white so in order to do that we want to select that layer hold shift and delete and then you’re gonna go down here and make sure this is checked on the white and then click OK and we have a white background.

So I’m gonna select my move tool and if you zoom in here you can see that the Leafs edges it’s just it’s not very good it’s got these particles and stuff like that from the background behind it so in order to remove that edge we are going to select our layer and select this layer mask right here and then go up here to this window right here.

what’s called masks and if you don’t have that window you can go up here to the top select window and then click mask and it should come up over here so once you select in the masked window you just want to go down here and select the button that says mask edge and then what we’re gonna do here is first select a smart radius and bring up this radius a tad bit and you’ll see that that edge is going away so the next thing we want to do is bring up this smooth down here.

so it makes it even better and then the final touch is contrast and you’ll see that it really goes away all of that was up just goes away and then we’re gonna select ok and then that looks really really nice that you can see you can zoom in and then hold spacebar if you want to move around so that looks really cool so that’s a very easy way to do that and so I hope this tutorial helped and stay tuned for the next tutorial and graphic design for beginners.
