Hi there, are you a photographer? Whatever you are freelancer photographer or Professional photographer, you need to remove your photo background and that’s why you are here! Today I will assist you to understand how pen tool works for removing photo background in adobe photoshop.
I’ll show you step by step how to select the pen tool, draw an anchor point and a path, and create a transparent background. Photoshop has several selection tools, but we will only use the first pen tool. Because the pen tool uses vector technology, it is the only tool that produces very clean and sharp selections with no blurred lines or soft edges. Pen tool is an important tool to use for removing photo background if we want to cut out any object with clean sharp edges. So, let’s get this party started!
Step 1: Open Photoshop and Insert an Image
If you are new in photoshop do not worry. Because this is a very easy photoshop technique I am going to tell about. Open the photoshop and you will see there is pen tool icon on the left side of the software.
Open your Adobe Photoshop Software from your PC/Laptop
Insert an image from your computer in Adobe Photoshop
Step 2: Select Pen Tool and Start Creating Clipping Path
Choose an image from which you want to remove the background from your computer. I chose a beautiful blanket image as an example. Using the pen tool, we will create a clipping path around the entire image’s edges. This is equivalent to cutting an image from a newspaper while having a seizure! So, go ahead and select the pen tool from the toolbar. We can begin working from any point on the image. First, we choose a point and begin drawing lines around its perimeter. The anchor point bends the path, allowing you to move the point’s head. With the help of this handle, we can properly set our path. Now we can bend the next control point by clicking and dragging it.
Select Pen Tool on the left of the Adobe Photoshop Software
Click any of the corners of the image and start drawing the clipping path
Step 3: Selects Path and Remove Background
The path panel is located on the right side of the Adobe Photoshop software. We can see in the path panel that we have just drawn a path layer. We now save the path layer by clicking on it. Then we select the entire path by clicking the right mouse button. We can convert the path into a selection by clicking on the selection option. So, select the layer and press Ctrl+J to create a new layer with the portion you selected.
Once you finish drawing the clipping path select the all path by clicking on the right button from the mouse
Once you select the whole path, now click the delete button on your keyboard and the background will be removed
Finally, we have removed our photo background! Now we will go to the file button and will click save. We will select our save the file as “PNG Transparent Background”.We can get more clean, sharp, and accurate extractions with the pen tool than with any other extraction technique in Photoshop. Because it uses vector technology to remove the background from photos. You may not have time as a photographer to complete all of these tasks for your hundreds of images.
