Chapter 9. Using the Paint, Shape Drawin... > Working with the Eraser Tools

Working with the Eraser Tools

Photoshop's basic Eraser tool converts image pixels in a layer to transparent pixels. While the primary function of the eraser tool has not changed, it has been greatly improved upon. For example, you can use the eraser tool to remove a specific color or to erase around the edge of an image object. You can instruct the Eraser tool to remove a specific color while protecting another color and at the same time, increase or decrease the tools' tolerance (the range of selection). As you can see, the eraser tools do more than blindly erase image information. As you master the eraser tools, you just may find those complicated image eraser jobs becoming easier and easier. The Background Eraser tool lets you select specific colors within an image and erase just those colors.
