How Do I Remove the Background of a Picture in Photoshop Online?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 12:29 am

If you have a picture that you want to use as part of a website or document, but the background is distracting, you can remove it in Photoshop. You don’t need any fancy software or equipment; all you need is a little bit of patience and some skill with a mouse. Here’s how to do it:

First, open the image in Photoshop. If the image is already on your computer, you can just double-click it to open it in Photoshop.

If the image is on the web, right-click it and select “Open with.” then choose Photoshop from the list of options.

PRO TIP: When removing the background of a picture in Photoshop Online, it is important to take care not to damage the original image. Photoshop Online can be a powerful tool for editing images, but it is important to use it carefully.

Once the image is open, go to the “Layers” panel on the right side of the screen. You should see your image on the Background layer. Double-click this layer to unlock it.

Now we need to select the background. There are a few different ways to do this, but we’ll use the “Magic Wand” tool because it’s quick and easy. Go to the toolbar on the left side of the screen and click on the wand icon (it looks like a magic wand).

Then, click anywhere on the background of your image. The selection will expand outward from where you clicked until it reaches an area with a different color or texture. If it doesn’t select everything you want removed, hold down the “Shift” key on your keyboard and click in additional areas until everything is selected.

Once everything is selected, hit the delete key on your keyboard and then deselect by going to Select>Deselect (or just hit Ctrl+D on your keyboard). Now you should have a transparent background!
