Changing backgrounds

Recommended Posts

That all depends upon how similar the background is. If it's, say, an indoors pic where the main background is a wall color, then it'd be pretty easy to use the Magic Wand tool to select the wall color. If, though, it's an outdoors-type pick with greens, blues, et cetera, it may not be so easy...

If you want, you could post the image here so we could se exactly what it is you need to remove.

Yeah, that's one reason they use green-screens. It makes it easy to automatically tell the computer, "hey if you see this green stuff, replace it with pixels from this other background picture." That's really important because in film they have to do hundreds or thousands of frames of this stuff ("Sin City" anyone?), and there's just no way any human being would have the stamina to do that.
