  1. To be sure, it’s great when you’re cutting something out of a plain white background, or when there’s something with a lot of contrast in it… but honestly, when the hell are you going to have that sort of setup with an actual design piece? Crap photography, bad lighting, little to no helpful contrast, whispy edges of things like hair or fabric… this tutorial is more of a “in a perfect world” kind of setup.

    1. Hey Jason, That’s a fair point I don’t disagree with you, but if you can grasp this technique with practice you can cut out more complex objects its a great foundation for being able to cut out any sort of object from a photo in Photoshop.

  2. Hi there, great little tutorial. I tried to use it right away as it is perfect timing for a digital layout assignment I am doing at school. I was able to cut away the sky above the mountain in a photo I am using, but when I place the photo in the Adobe InDesign layout the sky portion came through as white instead of transparent. Any idea how to fix that? Thanks!

  3. Nice tutorial and I do agree with Jason, however, when you 1st learn to drive it is a bumpy ride. Photoshop tools are very good but are rarely as simple to use as one click and done. As a photographers we try to make it as easy as poss for us or our clients to us PS in that way. Well done!

  4. Nice tutorial! This is very much important tutorial for everyone who is interested in the area of photo shop. It is the easiest way to follow video screencast on how to use Photoshop on how to cut out objects from photos in Photoshop. Thank you very much for shearing this tutorial.
