How to cut out a car from a photograph

Recommended Posts

I am new to the forum, so please bear with me if this has been discussed before. I rarely do editing etc. I do motorsport photography (mainly stock car racing) and have been asked to cut a car out of a background and then lay it on a Union Jack background, how easy is this to do as a novice? Regards James.

This depends on many factors. For example, the fullness of the background with surrounding objects, the monotonous color of the car, and some other factors. The solution may be both simple and difficult.

In any case, if you show us your image, it will speed up the process of helping you.
