Product Photo Tips & Tricks

What is the easiest way to change the image background in Photoshop? 

 

Wiki How – this seems like the old way to change a background color. I’m looking for a more efficient way to accomplish a task needing to be done in repetition. Ideally something we could do with a batch edit… but lets not get ahead of ourselves. >_^

 

How to Select and Change Colors in Photoshop by PHLEARN on Youtube

This tutorial is quick and easy and uses photoshop magic. 

Steps: 

Select Color Range

  1. Create New Layer
  2. Go to: “Select” > “Color Range”
  3. Select dropdown: Sampled Colors
  4. Use eyedropper on the background of the image
  5. Selection Preview: Grayscale (anything white/#ffffff is selected)
  6. Drop the Fuzziness slider & use + and – eyedropper tools to refine selection
  7. Click “OK” when the background is selected

Add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer 

  1. Go to: “Layer” > “New Adjustment Layer” > “Hue/Saturation”
  2. Click “OK” (Selection is now applied to a mask on a layer that controls color)
  3. Change sliders for desired color / effect.. 

This tutorial uses the hue slider to change the blue background to a teal background. Upon testing I learned that lightness slider helped me achieve the desired effect. The goal is to change the background color to white background for all product photos.

However, the photos I hoped to remove the background from have a beige backdrop with lots of wrinkles and shadows .. so I’m still looking for a better way to remove the beige and get a white background for the product photos. Regardless, it was a cool trick and a great place to start. I may still need a combination of other selection tools. Putting this brand on the back burner for now…

Steps above learned from the video posted below (0:55-3:55)
