Magic Extractor is documented thus:

 

Open the photo containing the object you want to extract.

To limit what appears in the Magic Extractor dialog box, make a preliminary selection using the Oval or Rectangular selection tool.
Choose Image > Magic Extractor.
The Magic Extractor dialog box opens with the Foreground Brush tool selected by default.

 

However after making my preliminary selection there is nothing on the menu (Image > Magic Extractor). Any ideas?

 

Using Photoshop Elements 2020 in Windows.

 

Thx

The Magic Extractor was removed several years ago. Photoshop Elements 2020 now has a new guided edit “Object removal” which uses content aware technology. See my blog YouTube video tutorial.

Just saw this. Just updated from 9 to 2020. regretting it already.

Magic extractor was so much easier to use to take a bit of image, with no backgrouind, to use elsewhere. Which is pretty fundamental.
