How To Quickly Make A Background White In Photoshop

Greetings and thank you for joining our tutorial! Our goal is to assist you in learning how to easily make an image background white using Adobe Photoshop. Whether you are new to the program, we will provide a step-by-step walkthrough.

Step 1: Open Your Image in Photoshop

To get started, open Adobe Photoshop and load the image you want to edit. You can simply do this by selecting File from the main menu, then Open, and choosing your desired image.

Step 2: Select the Background

The second step involves selecting the background you wish to make white. The Quick Selection Tool is perfect for this task.

On the Photoshop toolbox, it’s the fourth button from the top on the left side.

Step 3: Refine Your Selection

After making your initial selection, you’ll probably need to refine it to make sure you’ve got all of the background. To do this, you can add to your selection by holding down the Shift key and clicking the areas you want to add. Or, to remove areas from your selection, hold down the Alt key (Option key on Mac) and click the areas you wish to deselect.

Step 4: Add a Layer Mask

Once you are satisfied with your selection, it’s time to add a layer mask. You can do this by clicking the Layer Mask button at the bottom of the Layers panel.

Step 5: Make the Background White

Now that your layer mask is set, the background has become transparent. To make it white, you need to add a new layer below your current layer and fill it with white color.

Here’s the code:

    Layer > New > Layer... > OK
    Edit > Fill > Contents: White > OK

End Note

And that’s it! With these simple steps, you can quickly make any image’s background white in Photoshop. This technique can come in handy whether you are editing product shots for your online store, creating promotional materials, or simply just editing personal photos. Happy editing!
