How to do Super Complex Background Removal in Photoshop?
There are lots of components in photo editing. Background removal is a very popular background removal service in photo editing. Background removal service helps you to remove a background from your photo and get a new background to your photo object. There are different parts in background removal and super complex background removal is one of those.
There are many photo objects which are very complex such as bicycle, net, chains, bikes etc. which contains a lot of loops and curves. Removing the backgrounds of those photo objects are called super complex background removal or super complex clipping path. Doing a super complex background removal is not that easy but using Photoshop to do super complex background removal makes it easy. Here I will show how to do a super complex clipping path using only few steps. So let’s get started.
Steps of doing Super Complex Background Removal
Open the Photo
To get started with clipping path of a super complex photo, you need to open the photo in Photoshop. Open Photoshop in your windows/Mac and click on File > Open > Choose the image > Hit OK. Or you can also click CTRL + O to open the image files. Doing that, the file will be opened in Photoshop. Here we have chosen a photo of a Bicycle to work on.
Draw Clipping Path over the Cycle
The next thing we have to do to make super complex background removal is to draw clipping path over the cycle and create an outline. To draw clipping path you have to choose a tool. Here we have chosen pen tool to work with. Press ‘p’ on the keyboard to activate pen tool. Draw the outline over the cycle precisely to make perfect clipping path.
Draw Clipping Path on Loops
As you can see that there are lots of loops in this bicycle, we have to draw clipping path on each one loop. Doing is this very difficult and time consuming. That is why it has been included in super complex clipping path. We did not take another layer for creating complex clipping path over the loops. We are doing this in the same layer. To make it happen, keep the pen tool activated and create clipping path over every loop/hole you see in the bicycle.
After making clipping path over the outline of the cycle and the loops, it is time to make the selection for removing the background off. Press ctrl+enter on keyboard to make the selection. After pressing ‘ctrl+enter’, you will see dots moving around the selection part by which you will be sure that the places have been selected.
Remove Background by Pressing q
After making the selection of your selected path areas, it is time for removing the background. Just press ‘q’ on the keyboard and you will see the background removed.
Before vs After
Different clipping path service companies give different types of clipping path services. You just need to take the best service if you do not know how to make it done. That is the reason I have shared these simple steps of removing background of super complex photograph. So try this out and apply super complex background removal by yourself.
