Chapter 24. Fixing Photo Flaws > Using the Magic Eraser

Using the Magic Eraser

Magicians have lots of ways to make things disappear. There is an Elements tool that can do a similar kind of magic. It is called, appropriately, the Magic Eraser. It can remove a simple background with just a few clicks, leaving a transparent background for Web use or for layering in a composite. If the layer is locked for transparency, however, the Magic Eraser will replace the pixels with the background color.

To reach the Magic Eraser, click and hold on the regular Eraser to open the menu. The Magic Eraser is the one that has the sparkly part of the Magic Wand tool attached to it (see Figure 24.77).
