Turn background to solid white

Recommended Posts

Total newbie here so please bear with me. Any and all suggestions and helpful hints will be appreciated!

There's a style of photo editing that totally whites out the background leaving the subject to look like it's "floating" in the frame. This listing on ebay is the style I'm trying to emulate:


Also, what if I wanted to turn the entire background a solid color (say red) without altering the color of the subject--any advice on that?

Thanks in advance for your advice!

You need to cut out the portion of the image you want white. This will make the portion of the image transparent.

Then create a white layer and put it below your image layer. If you see pixelation or jagged edges apply object feather or aa's assistant on the image layer.
