If you need an image background removed, how do you do it?
I see Rahul Roy user 11767212 beat me to mentioning Photoshop; I would say that the answer is dependent on the platform(s) available to you and also on the nature of the background. Lastly you may use different tools depending on the picture file . To deal first with the file editing tools that you use on a RAW file will not destroy the picture you took - the modifications you make will be saved when you save your work but you will be able to reverse them if you change your mind or notice a mistake later. This is the best reason for using the RAW format in your camera. In any other format you lose the ability to undo your work as soon as you hit the save button. There are a variety of Windows based editors that will process both RAW and other file format and which have selection tools based on Collecting all the pixels of a given shape Recognising the outline of an shape (perhaps helped by mouse clicks from the user) Allowing you to cut the selection (or its inverse) out of a picture. Photoshop must be the market leader here but I also own a specific cutting tool which only works on JPG files InPixio PhotoClip. Photo Clip also works on Mac I understand. Haven tried it never had the money to own a Mac. If you are using Linux then the choices are much narrower. I have experience with GIMP (free and also available on Windows and Mac) but isn always able to process RAW files from the most up to date cameras (please no flames if this info is out of date; I bought Bibble 5 Pro when I started using RAW 8 years ago and I haven kept up to date with what GIMP can and can process). The selection tools in GIMP are very good but not as clever as PhotoClip in an untrained hand. You get a Free Select (click your way around) Fuzzy select (recognise contiguous pixels of the same colour) all pixels of a given colour a (not too dumb) smart edge detector and something that claims to recognise foreground objects. There is one thing that I don like about any of these tools though and with the possible exception of Photoshop none of them deal with it very well how the hell do we fill in the cut-away background. Take a photo I took of my daughter at Christmas. I backed away to try and get her head into the two thirds and thought well I can always cut out the bag and light stand) - or just crop. Turns out cropping puts the thirds lines in the wrong place and I haven yet been able to use the clone facility of any of my editors (Gimp DxO PhotoLab Aftershot Pro (rebadged descendant of Bibble 5 Pro) to make a non-obvious filler for the wall and floorboards. Another approach which would work on a less contrasty background would be to blur the stuff from which you want to take away attention. AftershotPro has a nice (free) plugin called zSoften which gives a decent defocus. Gimp has lots of blur tools whose mathematical names mean nothing to me. To sum up if you want to remove anything other than a monochrome background (like the one in Rahul example) you are going to have to get very good at selecting the stuff to cut out and have a plan for replacing it. Here is where I got to so far with the dress (PhotoClip then GIMP cloning)
How do I get permanent and safe clients for Photoshop clipping path?
It's not clear what is meant by a clipping path?! Photoshop is an application within the Adobe Creative Suite product line used for photo illustration illusion and production (editing). There's no such thing as a permanent client not for any business reason; the concept of safe isn't very realistic either. Anyone at anytime could suffer the most enthusiastic pleased as punch customer suddenly bing a knife wielding ego maniac on a tirade. Business arts production sales it's all about evolvinglivingchanging when necessary and growing realistically to fit the physical limitations of a given time Living is not stagnant it cannot be fixed w the possibility (reality) of sudden death or required restitution as remedy. What seems safe to one can easily be realized as folly or farce to another safe is a concept generalization that must be supported by consistent facts proved to be fairly fixedor not capable of drastic altercationdue to specific limitations (such as a species' anatomy constructed designs of things a formula something not living or not constructed already). Plato is accredited with The idea of a chair is more real than a chair. It means a constructed chair might collapsethe materials used to develop it might failbut the design of it enables infinite new development by the same design. So art renderings of photographsa set or series of fixed (meant to be constants) photos for a long-term presentation by incorporating a clipping path during production can't earn a permanent safe client and not just because a client is a living person or an entity that might change and need changes at any designated time. All thingsanimate objectshave the physical ability to change and everything experiences the constant probability for necessary change even deceased personsif just by identitiesmight suffer a change to cause seemingly fixed circumstances to no longer be real. The mediuminternet paper print or electronic imaging devices camerasmight collapse rendering a fixed work as useless without change; whether or not a client would not just say what the hell and bail is never really safe to say. Variables If a changepresentation or procedureis required for a Photoshop production will the current producer's skill equipment talent (knowledge) or overall situation be capable of creating viable (feasible functionable) change?! No way of knowing until you've walked a mile in those shoes maybe or maybe not; what's certain even deceased persons' identities could declare no more from out of the grave. Life is NOT set in stone and even the finest of headstones can fail or fall to rubble. What any one can or might do today could be impossible to do again tomorrow

Can Affinity Photos and Affinity Designer replace Photoshop and Illustrator, or are the differences quite significant?
Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer are both professional level design programs that can easily replace PS and Ai in your work flow. There will be a learning curve like with anything which of course made me ufortable at first given that I learned Adobe products in school. However upon realigning your muscle memory youll find you never want to go back to Adobe. Never forget this- graphic design does not meanputer design. By that same token no one software defines graphic design. Adobe products have be overbloated (they run extremely slow in many cases if at all) and their subscription model is problematic for many people for various reasons. The constant updates really have only hurt the software not helped. Their customer service really is a joke and more than thates across as troubling for most. Their answer to everything is to remotely control yourputertypically they go for that without truly assessing what your issue isit just disturbing. Their reputation has been going downhill since the early 21 and now (218) is as good a time as any to jump ship. Everything about Affinity is simpler than Adobe products- price usability etc. You can open PS and Ai files in Affinity Designer too so you don have to worry about being caught with your hands tied. With Affinity Designer the pro-level graphic designer is finally able to take Adobe products off of theirputer and function in this field with peace of mind that theyve got a perfect replacement. My motto is kick Adobe to the curb. italic
How do graphic designer recreate these logo step by step?
To recreate a vector version of the CNN logon Copy and paste your reference into Illustrator on an empty layer and check the template box in the layer options.n n n Starting again with the C use the direct select tool to select only the two vertices on the left. Make sure both corner widgets are visible (the little circled dots near the corners). n Likewise round the corners of the N and where the C and N meet.n Using the Appearance Panel add another stroke to letterform stroke. With the letterform object selected click on the Stroke icon (little box in the lower left) of the Appearance panel.n Using the Appearance panel again set the lower stroke to white and and click on the stroke weight value. Tap the up arrow key until the white stroke matches the thickness in your example.n nHowever in outline mode it will look like thisn To Expand the logo select all (Cmd-A) and first select Expand Appearance . Then select Expand Make sure both Fill and Stoke boxes are checked in the Expand dialog window and press OK.n Once you've merged the logo you will end up with three discreet shapes one shape for the red and two for the white letterforms. This is the logo view in outline moden
How can I set which colour is to be a transparent background for PNG files in the macOS ‘Preview’ app?
First you must note that unlike gif files you don designate a transparent color per se. A png file has a so-called alpha channel for each pixel in addition to the RGB information which defines its color by the amount of red green and blue there is an additional value for transparency. It can be fully opaque fully transparent or somewhere in between. Now that weve dealt with this I will assume you have an image with a background (say white) that you want to make transparent. Click the magic wand button in the toolbar and then click and drag over an area that has the desired color. This will select a contiguous area (of white for example). Press Delete. If necessary (ie if there are noncontiguous parts that are also white) repeat the procedure. It that easy.
How do I remove the background in a photo from around a model in Adobe Photoshop?
Depending on the photo if the background is mostly the same color you could try to highlight or select the background around the model in order to change it. One could either select the background and press ctrl and X to cut out the background and leave it just one color or you could copy and paste the selected area and use a ure to fill the backgrounddepending on the photo if you go to blending options and stroke I use the gradient that goes from black to nothing as a way to smooth down the edges between the object and the backgroundor even make your own gradient as a white to nothing background to help smooth things sometimes Ill do the inverse select of the background copy and paste the model part instead of the background and use the stroke on the model instead to blend in the model with the background. if the background is a crazy amount of colors sometimeswhat Ill do is draw or outline the inside of the model to select most of the model and copy and paste a new back to the background layer and select the edges of the model to be able to copy and paste the exact outline rather than try to trace the outlinedo this for as many layers as needed in order to get all the edges selected and pasted onto another layer then you can merge the layers of the model once youve got the whole model copy and pasted as layers and make it into one layer of just the model insteadyou can either copy or paste the model into another open photo of the background you like or even insert a background into that photo however you like. for this one I was able to highlight the blue and black part of the jacket behind the kid in the first photo to make it all black. Then I selected the black portion of the photo after cropping it to be able to create my own background using the ure or patterns that you can use or make yourself. for instance if you have a photo with a cool background or pattern you can open the photo in photo shop. Then go to edit and select define pattern from the menu. Hit ok then when you go to edit a layer by rightclicking it and selecting blending options you can go to the patterns tab to select the pattern you just saved. If both are background and model are busy then Ill do a rough outline of the model and copy and paste that as another layerthen go to the layer you pasted select bits of the background that you don want in the photo and cut those parts out of the layer you just pasted. sometimes what helps me is to be able to select things by making a selection that has a line other than the 18 or degree vertical or horizontal line for instance if I wanted to select the background or cut out the background what I could do is start at the outer edge of the bottom pant leg draw a line up (doesn have to be straight but straight enough then when youre right across the point of the top of the waist line of the pant draw a straight line over til you reach the top of the waist line then lift your mouse. The selector will finish the selection by forming a allows you to select things at an angle using a straight line rather than just being able to select things vertically or horizontally only. for the middle part start at the middle of the pants at the crotch area to select an area and draw a straight line down and then a line straight across to the right til you reach the bottom left corner of the right pant leg and then lift you mouse upthis should form a triangle to select the inner side of the whole right pant leg that you can cut out. for the bottom of the right pant leg start selecting at the bottom left corner of the right pant leg and draw a line straight across to the right and then up to the tip of the bottom right corner of the pant leg and left your finger off the mouse to form a triangle to select the bottom side of the right pant leg to cut out that area of the background. Hopefully you get the picture
