What is Cut Out Image?

It is a process of cutting the images by selecting a part making use of Photoshop tools and saving it in a new file. Or the image can also be placed on some other background with some more images to make a fine collage by using lovely effects.

Steps to Cut Out Image From a Background:

Photoshop, being the most used and renowned designing software, offers many tools to cut out image from a background. Take a sneak-peak in the three of the most used methods to cut out an image:

Method 1: Quick Selection Tool
  1. First of all, open Photoshop on your device.
  2. Then, open the image you want to cut out from the background. Click on “Open” under “File” menu and open the desired image.
  3. Craft a duplicate layer of that image so that it doesn’t affect the original image. Selecting “duplicate layer” under the “Layer” menu will show you a pop up box. Just click “OK” and an editable layer will be created.
  4. You will see “Quick Selection Tool” in Photoshop toolbox. Take the tool and click right on the image. It will equip you to select the wanted areas of the image which needs to be cut out.
  5. Drag your mouse over the image or hold it down to map out the area which you want to cut. “Quick Selection Tool” will automatically take the to-be-cut area in the selection.
  6. Now you can deselect the extra parts by clicking on “Subtract from selection” which is present above the toolbox in horizontal area. For this, you need to click on the unnecessary areas of the image.
  7. Once when you are done, right click on the selected area and click on “Layer via Cut”. This option will slice that particular area and the picture will be positioned in fresh layer.

NOTE: When you have selected the area to be cut, you can smooth its edges to give it a refined look. For this, get on “Refine Edge” on top of the toolbox and a pop-up will appear. Fill in the required value or radius under “Edge Detection” and the selected area will get smoothen.

Method 2: Magic Wand Tool

As the name implies, it works as a magic wand. You need to be lucky enough to use this tool to select the image and extract it from the background. All you need to do is take the tool from the toolbox and click on the image. Sometimes it’s easy to scrub out the surplus parts of an image by using this tool and picking the desired image to put away in a new file.

Method 3: Polygonal Lasso Tool

It is like a pen tool wherein you need to select the image by clicking on a point and then moving further to closely together points.

  1. Grab the tool from the Photoshop toolbox.
  2. Avoid sharp edges taking closely related points by clicking on the outer parts of an image.
  3. If by mistake, wrong selection is taken, press backspace and take the selection again.
  4. Now when you arrive at the point where you first started, click there and entire area will be traced.
  5. Lastly select Inverse and click on Delete and here you get the image cut out.
