Step 4: Now click the “Create new path” menu in the “Paths” icon palette. After that, you will have a “Path 1” where you can create a clipping path for any subject or image. Otherwise, you will have “work path”. I suggest to create it in Path 1 according to my before sentence. Also, you can change the work path to Path 1 by double-clicking on it.
Step 5: Zoom in the photo in a better view. 300% or 400% is the best for creating a smooth clipping path. Here navigator icon palette will help to show the zooming. Navigator icon palette finds in the window menu.
Step 6: Now start creating or drawing a path around your photos perfectly. The first point should be to start from easy shape or edge. Continue drawing your path around the whole image edge until you reach the first point. If you need to create another drawing for the same image. Just start again the same as the first step and complete it.
Step 7: Select it after complete creating your path around the subject. Right-click on “Path 1” and hit the make selection option. Now you have a new dialogue box and press the “OK” button with Feather Radius 0.2 or 0.3 pixels. Feather should depend on image resolution. Select it to shortcut by holding on “Ctrl” + click “Path 1” in paths icon palette.
Step 8: Press the “Layer” menu in the menu bar then there go-to “New” and click on the “Layer via Copy” option. New layer created with the image and without the original background in the “Layer” icon palette. But the “Layer” icon palette should be visible. If not, get it from the Window menu the same as other icon palettes.
Step 9: Close the eye for the “Background” layer. Now the image has no background. That’s mean the image has a transparent background. Save it in PNG format if you want without background.
For white or any solid color background.
Step 10: Create a new blank layer in the “Layer” palette below Layer 1. Select a solid color from the adjustment layer option and choose the exact color which you want.
