How to remove background from an image
There are many ways to remove the background from an image... I am going to explain two of those ways.
1. Magic Wand Tool
The Magic Wand selects pixels based on tone and color. Many people tend to get frustrated with the Magic Wand because it can some times be impossible to control which pixels it selects. If you have a contrasting image between the background and subject, it can be quite simple, but if your subject and background are similar tones, you have a nightmare on your hands!
2. Pen Tool
The Pen Tool creates paths and shapes which can be duplicated and manipulated to create complex selections, masks and objects. To make selections with the Pen Tool, we simply convert the path or paths we've drawn into selections.
