How to make a transparent png in photoshop

You can do a lot of things with Adobe Photoshop, and removing image backgrounds is one of them. Removing backgrounds with Photoshop is very easy and will only require a few clicks.

There are several ways to remove an image’s background in Photoshop. Let’s go over them.

Use the Magic Wand Tool

The Magic Wand Tool is a selection tool that automatically selects pixels of similar tones or colors. Here’s how to use it to remove an image’s background:

  1. Open your image with Adobe Photoshop.
  2. Click and hold the Quick Selection Tool on the Tools panel. Choose the Magic Wand Tool from the dropdown menu.
  3. Adjust the Tolerance to the desired level. You can experiment with the tolerance level as you go along.
  4. You will see a plus (+) icon as you hover your cursor over the image. Click on the areas you want to remove. The areas enclosed with running broken lines represent what you’ve selected.
  5. Use the cut command (Ctrl + X on Windows or Cmd + X on Mac) to remove the selected areas.
  6. Click File > Save As to save your image, ensuring that the PNG format is selected.

Use the Magic Eraser Tool

The Magic Eraser Tool is like the Magic Wand Tool in that it selects similar-looking pixels. But unlike the Magic Wand, the Magic Eraser’s sole purpose is to remove its selection.

  1. Open your image with Adobe Photoshop.
  2. Click and hold the Eraser Tool on the Tools panel. Choose the Magic Eraser Tool from the dropdown menu.
  3. Change the Tolerance. You can experiment with the tolerance level as you use the tool.
  4. Click the areas you want to remove, and the Magic Eraser will remove them.
  5. Click File > Save As to save your image, ensuring that the PNG format is selected.

Use the Lasso Tool

The Lasso Tool is another selection tool that lets you outline the specific area that you want to select. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Open your image with Adobe Photoshop.
  2. Click the Lasso Tool on the Tools panel. Hold and drag your cursor around the object you want to remove from the background.
  3. Create a new layer by clicking the New Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel. Make sure that the new layer is transparent. You’ll know it’s transparent if it displays a checkered white and gray fill instead of a solid color fill.
  4. Select the Move Tool on the Tools panel, click the selected image, and cut and paste it onto the new transparent layer.
  5. Delete the layer with the background.
  6. If part of the background remains, remove it with the Magic Eraser or the Magic Wand Tool.
  7. Once you’re done polishing the image, choose File > Save As to save your image. By default, Adobe Photoshop will save the image in PSD format. Instead, save it in PNG format.
