First of all, we are going to see how to remove the background using the famous desktop version of the Photoshop program.

Open the photo to be edited by clicking on “File” at the top right and then on “Open”. Here select the desired photo.

Now select the black color in the foreground , from the color table at the top right (or by clicking at the bottom left) and then the brush tool .

With the brush then go to color only the subject , not the background. (If you make a mistake and paint the background, you can erase the mistake by using the brush with the white color).

Now he went back on top, click on “ Select “ and disables the “mode Quick Mask mode “ (by clicking on).

Then click on the “ Rectangular Selection “ tool (from the toolbar on the left), click with the right mouse button on the photo (anywhere), and choose “ Select Inverse “.

Now copy the selection (with Ctrl + C) , and create a new image by clicking on the top left on “File” and then “New”.

Set the size of the photo and if you want a transparent or colored background (in “Background content”).

You can also open a new image and paste the copied subject onto it. Now Save (in PNG format if you have selected the transparent background) and that’s it.

If you don’t want to do all these steps and prefer a faster but less professional method, here are some to do:

First, open the photo to be edited by clicking on “File” at the top right and then on “Open”.

Here select the desired photo. Now click on the “ Lasso “ tool (top left) and select the “ Magnetic Lasso “ (with the right button).

With the magnetic lasso selected, take care to select the outline of your subject on the foreground, until you merge the selection that will blink.

Now do Ctrl + C , create a new photo (File> New) and paste the subject .

Alternatively, once the selection flashes, you can click with the right mouse button, then on “Reverse selection” and with the eraser go to delete all the outline and then replace it as you wish.

There are tons of ways to copy a subject and paste it on a new background! For all modes, take care to select the edges of the foreground subject as precisely as possible, perhaps with the help of the “Refine Edges” function.

Once registered, click on (+) (bottom right) and select the photo to edit.

Now press on “ Silhouette” and color the subject to be cut out , being very careful as you are using a finger and not the most precise mouse cursor.

This is the same procedure as the “Mask” seen previously for the Desktop version.

Click on the check mark at the bottom right and in “ Sharing “ and select “ Save to gallery “. You will find your photo in the gallery of your smartphone.
