Remove background

Hello everyone,

I am sure there are tools to do this, but I have just spent hours searching and cant find them. What I need is a tool which will extract a set of product photos from their background. The background is a gray dropcloth and contrasts quite well with the subject. I need to find a way to do this in batch since using manual extract on hundreds of pictures is not going to be easy.
Thanks.

Adam.

Hi!

have you tried the "color range" function? If the contrast are weak and/or with many details, you can with the "background eraser" do it quite well. But if you upload the photo, its much easier to tell hows to do it good. If you want to do in a batch, perhaps the color range will do best.
