How to Change Background Color in Photoshop
As a graphic designer or photographer, you may need to change the background color of an image or make it transparent in Photoshop. Luckily, it is a relatively easy process that can be done in just a few steps.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on changing the background color in Photoshop:
Step 1: Open Photoshop and load the image you wish to edit. Click on “File” in the top menu, then select “Open” and browse to the location of your image. Double-click on it to open it in Photoshop.
Step 2: Create a new layer. Click on “Layer” in the top menu, then select “New” and choose “Layer.” Alternatively, you can use the shortcut key “Ctrl+Shift+N.”
Step 3: Choose your new background color. To do this, click on the paint bucket tool in your toolbar (or use the shortcut key “G”). Select the desired color from the color picker or input the hexadecimal code for the color.
Step 4: Fill the new layer with your chosen background color. Select the new layer and click on the paint bucket tool. Click anywhere on the document to fill the layer with the chosen color.
Step 5: Move the original layer above the new background layer. To do this, click on the original layer in the Layers panel and drag it up and above the new background layer.
Step 6: Create a layer mask. Select the original layer and click on the “Layer Mask” icon at the bottom of the Layers panel. Alternatively, you can use the shortcut key “Ctrl+Shift+N.”
Step 7: Apply the layer mask. Choose the “Brush” tool from the toolbar and set the foreground color to black. Brush over the areas of the original layer that you wish to remove.
Step 8: Save your work. Once you are done, save the edited image by clicking on “File” in the top menu and selecting “Save As.” Choose the desired file format and hit “Save.”
Congratulations, you have successfully changed the background color of your image in Photoshop! With a few simple steps, you can give your image a new look and make it stand out.
