Hi there.

I am using Illustrator for the first time and I can't seem to figure out how to remove the backround from an image from the web. I hvae tried using the pen but it is quite confusing on how to use it. Could someone please advise and assist with my query, I would appreciate it greatly. Thank you.

With the pen you can create a path and use it to isolate elements in objects/images by turning it into a clipping path.

But for images, like jpeg, Photoshop has the better tools since it is an image editor.

Joshua,

 

In addition to what Ton said, I believe the best way depends on the actual properties of the image, especially the boundary/boundaries between wanted and unwanted parts.

 

In many cases PS is the obvious choice, but in some cases you may be happier if you draw the boundary/boundaries partially or entirely with the Pen Tool and/or other Tools in AI usually with adjustments. And in other other cases you may be happier if you draw the wanted parts as vector artwork.

 

And depending on the purpose and use, the question of copyright may arise.

 

A screenshot or just the image (using the Insert Photos button looking like moon over mountains) might help helpers help better.

 

 

Edit: Hi Ton, mostly like rather late autumn here.

Hi Jacob, more like early spring during the day, blackbirds singing.
