Change Background Color With Photoshop Elements. A Quick And Easy Tutorial Shows How To Do It
Probably the quickest way to change the background color of a photo with Photoshop Elements is to use the method shown in this video. To see a related Tutorial of this go to: http://www.essential-photoshop-elements.com/change-background-color.html Or, if you want to see all the Photoshop Elements Tutorials I have available go to: http://www.essential-photoshop-elements.com/photoshop-elements-tutorials.html First you have to make an accurate selection of the background of your photo. Usually the Quick Selection Tool does a good job. I was surprised that with this photo I got my selection done faster using the Magic Wand Tool. After getting the selection you just go to the Layers Panel and click on the "Create a New Fill Or Adjustment Layer" icon and choose the first item in the pop-up list which is "Solid Color..." That will bring up the Color Picker Dialog where you can pick the color that you want to use as your new background color. You should also check to make sure you have a nice smooth transition to your new color. If the edges are too sharp you can soften them by blurring your Layer Mask. Once you have that Solid Color Layer you can easily change to any other color you might want your background to be by double-clicking on the Layer to bring up the Color Picker and then choosing a new color. Instead of a solid color background you might want to show the detail from your original photo. In that case you just change the Layer Blend Mode from "Normal" to " Color." The effect of that is more like putting a new color tint over the background of your photo.
