How to remove the background in 1 click
Over the years many have asked me to remove backgrounds of people or objects. Making the image transparant and providing it with a background color / image of choice is actually way easier than you may think. A fair warning, this technique only works with simple images. Images with a detailed background require some manual masking.
Step 1: Choose your photo
And drag the image to Adobe Photoshop.
Step 2: Press W to select the Quick Selection Tool
And click on "Select Subject" to select the model.
Step 3: Press Enter to finish
And that's it! The background is no longer visible and you could save this file as a PNG or TIFF to place it without background.
Extra: Place another background
You could also place another background color, gradient or image instead behind the masked layer.
