Removing and replacing difficult backgrounds is no longer difficult with Smart Mask

by Fred Showker


Akvis fireworks, sunbursts, stage lights, shimmers, glitter, sparkles Yes, it's the million dollar question. If you ask Google, you might see this question has been asked and answered one hundred thousand times more than fifteen million. (15,100,000) In fact, DTG and Photoshop Tips & Tricks have answered that question three times, once each decade PHotoshop has been alive! But every Tom, Dick and Harry (Honre) who opens Photoshop will at some point put up their own tutorial on how to remove backgrounds, and the community will eat it up and all stand in a circle celebrating another "removing backgrounds" tutorial. However, it just ain't that easy -- well, until SmartMask came along.

Remember when removing backgrounds in Photoshop was complicated

Remember when you had to take all those steps in Photoshop? Ten years ago, Katrin Eismann, Photoshop DIVA took five pages to teach you how to perfectly remove backgrounds in 2007
