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. 


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. I’m wondering if I used the lightness slider I could achieve the desired effect. The goal is to change the background color to white background for all product photos.

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