Like it says in the title of this topic, this is for the beginners - so it's gonna teach novice
Photoshop users how to do it, so they don't have to request it.
We're gonna start with this image:
Let's remove the white background:
|Step 1||Open Adobe Photoshop and import your image.|
|Step 2||Double click on your image layer to unlock it.Click OK.|
|Step 3||Pick the "Magic wand" tool.|
|Step 4||Click on the background you want to remove to make a selection.|
|Step 5||Press the Delete key on your keyboard to delete the background.|
|Step 6||Press CTRL and D on your keyboard to deselect. Save it as a PNG file format.|
Here's the final result:
The edges turned out really bad, let's edit them!
(Let's add an inner stroke)
To add a stroke, Right click on your image layer and go to blending options.
Choose the "stroke", make the color similar to the edge of your original image,
and use the settings:
• Size: 1px
• Position: Inside
• Blend mode: Normal
• Opacity: 100%
• Fill Type: Color
You should get something like this:
(Save it as a PNG file)
