I am an inexperienced user who needs to remove backgrounds from race cars for our foundation fundraiser event posters. We raise money for kids fighting cancer. I have a macos Catalina vs 10.15.7.  Am frustrated that I cannot seem to master the tools in photoshop to do the car edges well.  I feel like I would have better control using a pen or stylus, but I know nothing about these either.  Would appreciate your help.  Thank you.

For selections with hard solid edges the best tool is the pen tool. Use it to create a path around the car, then make a vector mask from that path.

Best is to use the pen tool for selection if you want to achieve a perfect selection. Use the pen tool as a path and convert to Selection. I will also go with the select and mask and see where you have mistakes.

The absolute best series of videos on using the pen tool are by Mike Hoffman, who sometimes posts to this forum.  There are five videos all together, and you'll find the others linked from part #1 below.  There is a learning curve for sure, but it is an important skill to learn.

Hi,

I read your message and the discussion above. But, I want to suggest, first of all, you should watch some tutorials on Photoshop, and if, you don't have enough time for it, then as a beginner you can go for more simplest software to use.

And just for the removal of background, you can use Bg.remove from the image as well. Watch videos and films from the website to get more insights. It will definitely help you.

 

Thanks.
