Part 7. Drawing and Painting with Color > Task 2 How to Erase an Image

Task 2 How to Erase an Image

Erasing an image is the opposite of painting in the sense that it removes the current pixel values in the image window, based on the brush strokes. When you erase, consider which Eraser tool you should use and what you want to erase. The Eraser Options bar offers three Eraser tool options: Brush, Block, and Pencil. The Brush eraser lets you erase using a brush preset, as described in Part 2, Task 3, “How to Create Custom Tool Presets.” The Block eraser offers a flat, geometric effect that's perfect for hard-edged erasures, and the Pencil eraser lets you erase using hard-edge brush strokes only.

1. Select the Erase Tool

With the image you want to modify open onscreen, click the Eraser tool in the toolbox and drag to select the desired tool. Select the Eraser, Background Eraser, or Magic Eraser tool.
