Help with "erasing a background"
Posted on 2006-06-05
Hello, My desire is to "erase the background" from a photo. The photo is of a handbag that want to exhibit on a web site. I wish to remove the background and then, add a shadow to the bag so it Pops Out to the eye. I have used the Magic Eraser tool (Photoshop CS2) and have my background now as gray and white checks, looks good, bag is outlined well. So, how do I finish it off...........get the checked background to disappear and add shadow to it? I have serached on line and while there are tutorials out there, none goes into detail beyond what I have done, they seem to assume I should know and perhaps I should, but alas I do not.
Thanks so much!!!! Doreen
