Task 6 How to Silhouette an Image

Silhouetting (also called knocking out) an image refers to isolating part of an image against a white background, cutting it out from the rest of the frame. This task uses the Extract command to silhouette an image cleanly and easily. The Extract command asks you to define the edge of the object and then cuts it away from the background. Then you can smooth and modify the silhouette edges endlessly before you accept the final result.

1. Open the File

Open the desired image file. Then select Filter, Extract to open the Extract dialog box.
