Erasing Image Content

Photoshop offers three different eraser tools so that you can achieve exactly the erasing effect that you need in any particular situation.

Using the Eraser

The standard Eraser tool erases color or content on a layer, enabling the background layer in the image to show through to varying degrees, depending on the opacity you specify. If you’re working on the background layer itself, using the standard Eraser actually paints or draws the currently selected background color rather than erasing layer content. The following steps show an example of each of these uses for the Eraser.
