Cut Out Fur From Busy Backgrounds In Photoshop

Code Canyon


In this Photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to cut out fur from busy backgrounds!

This tutorial is a request from a PTC viewer, João Faro from Portugal. He sent in a photo of his cat asking how to remove the background.

The image is not of very good quality and it is shot up against a busy background which makes it an ideal image for today’s tutorial!

In this video, you will learn three techniques that will help you cut out fur or hair in images with different backgrounds.

First, you will learn how to customize a brush in Photoshop to help you create the illusion of fur as you paint on the mask.

Then you will learn how to use the clone stamp tool to hide imperfections that you create with your hairbrush on your mask.

And finally, you will learn how to pain in strands of fur and hair in areas that would be difficult to mask.

    Great video Jesus. You are an awesome instructor. BTW, I mask a lot of landscape photos and use your technique with the Min/Max filters to remove the masking fringes. Works great on most photos, especially ones with trees with leaves protruding into the sky.

    Well this would not be my choice of approach.
    You get away with it cause the BG is dark blue. And later you are painting fur over it, why not start with painting over it in the beginning . What if the BG was pink or a bright orange ??
    The way I (would) do it, is,
    Have a hair brush (make it yourself with some smal dots, next to each other with a small size differents), if you don't know how to make one, you can find them if you search on PS hair brushes
    Sample the color on the fur next to the area you want to paint and paint the fur at the edge, sample the color again en paint again and move on (like you did with the whiskers ) of-course with a Wacom pad or alike with pen pressure and all the other setting dialed in .
    I would even fiddle about with the blend modes whilst painting.
    When I saw that BLUE BG coming through, when you were painting on that mask, I though OH NO NO NO hehehehehe.
    Thanks for sharing again !
    Love your tuts.

    As always an outstanding tutorial and a great channel to learn Photoshop in depth. Two days ago, I have been confronted with a similar situation, but separating the subject in order to use it in 3×2 m roll up. When the subject will appear in a such a big size, or even bigger on a street billboard or building mesh, any small imperfection shows up! So, this sort of techniques building hair are more than useful. Again, wonderful totorial and a big thank you for you Jesus for sharing it!❤

    Very goooood i was wanting this trick,i have a trick about the shadow as you did in the previous videos i hope you hear me please try it,once you have your subject that you want to make a shadow for it duplicate it and put it under the original subject then lock transparency and fill it to black then transform it how you want it to be on the ground then move it out of the framework not disable seen it just with the move tool move it out of your sight where it should be in the gray range of the framework then double click on it and choose shadow and you will see the shadow is far try to find it and here you go you have a shadow with opacity and spread,size 🙂

    This is wonderful. We lost our cat to cancer, quite unexpectedly. (He actually looked a lot like this cat.) All of our pictures had busy backgrounds, and we really wanted a picture of just him. Thank you so much!
