Hi,

I am designing a catalogue however the photos have a background, for
example the pictures are of shoes but i can see the table the shoe is
sitting on and the background behind the shoe, is there a way to cut
the shoes out in Photoshop so the background is removed?

Thanks

Photoshop wizard Colin Smith offers this simple tutorial on using the Extract Tool:

http://www.photoshopcafe.com/tutoria...out/cutout.htm

In Photoshop, there are always about six different ways to do everything. If this technique doesn't do it for you, there are many tutorials free for the googling of alternate methods.

If you do a lot of this sort of thing, you might consider specialized applications like Corel KnockOut or Vertus Fluid Mask.

The reply (now deleted) was Spam. IOW, that reply to an 11 Month old post was made to advertise the poster's services.
