3 simple ways to remove backgrounds

Product photos are the basis for any online business. Image quality and consistency can make the difference between having a successful product or not. 

Many entrepreneurs face the problem of removing the background for their product images for various reasons: there is no unitary background on the site, the set used in the photoshoot no longer corresponds to the current vision of the brand, or they want a particular background for an advertising campaign.

Experimenting with your product on different backgrounds is a quick way to highlight a product without having to hire a photographer, travel, or invest in lots of props.

Photoshop is the most popular and powerful image editor available

This is the industry standard for image editing, and designers, photographers, and artists use it to create perfect images.

Here are two simple ways to remove background in Photoshop without being an expert in photo editing:


Option 1: Photoshop Remove Background Tool 

- One of the easiest ways to remove the background on an image is to use Adobe Photoshop

If you are a beginner, we recommend you try Photoshop’s built-in Remove Background Tool. You will get a clean canvas for your photo in seconds and with no photo editing knowledge. 

How it works:

  1. First, open your image in Photoshop. 

  2. Then create a new layer in the right-hand Layers panel. (+ button)

  3. Select the Background Layer and deselect the other ones.

  4. Make sure the panel is expanded so you see the Quick Actions dropdown menu.

Option 2: Quick Selection Tool in Adobe Photoshop


The Quick Selection tool is one of many selection tools in Photoshop. Photoshop detects and selects the edges when you choose an area, so you don’t have to trace them manually.

This tool works great for photos with high contrast and well-defined edges.
The tool works best for photos with high contrast and well-defined edges.

You can find The Quick Selection Tool in the panel on the left of your screen. It should be the fourth option below the Polygonal Lasso Tool. The quick selection icon should look like a paintbrush with dotted lines around the tip.

How to use the Quick Selection Tool:

  1. Open your image in Photoshop.

  2. Find the Quick Selection Tool. The icon represented by a solid rectangle surrounded by a dotted line is found on the left side toolbar by right-clicking the Object Selection Tool and clicking the third icon.

  1. Move the pointer until you have surrounded part of the image that will remain after the background has been removed. You can also tap "Select Subject" in the upper "Options" menu bar. Zoom in to fix imperfections around the subject. You might find you want to add to the selection. If so, click and drag over another area. 

  2. When you reach the desired result, right-click your outlined subject and then click "Layer Via Copy."

  3. Tap the eyeball icon in the "Layers" panel next to "Layer 0," as it will be called by default to make the background disappear in the menu on the right side of your screen.
