Learn how to replace any boring studio backdrop with the image of your choice. It’s a quick process that reads longer than it’ll actually take you to do it. Stay tuned to find out how !
HOW TO REPLACE A BACKGROUND
Use the QUICK SELECTION TOOL to select the background by clicking and dragging
Press Q to refine your selection. The areas that aren’t in the selection will turn red (your subject)
Paint with white to include to left out areas that you wish to be in your selection
Invert the selection once you’re finished by going to the SELECT TAB at the top and clicking the INVERT option
Hit the LAYER MASK BUTTON (next to the CREATE A NEW LAYER BUTTON) to delete the background
Drag the image in of the background you wish to replace
My advice is to take your time when refining your selection. Use 100% opacity on the brush to get faster results when refining. But please, be mindful that this is the most important part that can make or break the image.
