Hi,

I have photoshop 23.0.0 and am not finding the quick actions in discovery or in the properties.

How do I correct this?

Thanks

Do you have the Background layer selected or another layer?

Also, you might to collapse the other sections if your panel is too small.

 

Share a screenshot if you don't see it.

I do not see "Quick Actions" either and I have updated my Photoshop. The Properties selection was toggled. Here is a screenshot.

Hi Phil,

You will see Quick Actions on the Background layer and pixel layers, not on Smart Object layers like the one you have selected.

 

Also, notice that you have a scroll bar. If you still don't see Quick Actions when you are on a Background or pixel layer, then either scroll down or resize the panel. Or you can click the disclosure triangle to toggle the other sections and collapse them.

Okay, now I see the "Quick Actions" toolbar when I click on the background image layer. So how would I then remove the background on an image layer that is added AFTER the background image? Would this image have to be in its own New Photoshop Document (i.e tab) so I can then remove the background and place it back into the original Photoshop Document (one with the background)?

You will see Quick Actions on the Background layer and pixel layers. If it's a pixel layer, you should see the command to remove the background.

Layers that are made up of pixels, or "normal" layers. 

 

They are NOT:

  • adjustment layers
  • masks
  • type layers
  • smart objects
  • effects
  • et cetera

Please see a screenshot, which may help in asking my question. How do I remove the background from image of the basketball player? Or can I not?

Hi Phil,

 

You will see Quick Actions on the Background layer and on pixel layers, not on Smart Object layers like the one you have selected.

 

Is there a reason you have made this a Smart Object? If not, you can rasterize it.
