Picking The Right Tools
There are a lot of different ways to delete a background within Photoshop, but the easiest and most obvious would be to use the background eraser tool, you must click and hold on the eraser tool for the background eraser tool to be optional. Once you have selected it, you can hit “E” on your keyboard to quickly pan between tools.
How It Works
The Crosshair in the centre of the circle is the colour that will be deleted. If you have a bigger radius selected, then it should be easier to delete the background quicker as it picks up similar shades of the colour you have selected.
Getting a background deleted properly can be difficult, but by using the background eraser tool, it can become a very quick, easy and simple task. When using this technique for website design tasks for such companies that handle PPC and even SEO for example, it can make the task much more efficient when deleting a background only takes a few seconds.
This means you can pull an image from an source and select the specific elements of that image that you want to use in your work.
