Removing background from images

Hi,

I am designing a catalog however the photos have a background, for
example the pictures are of shoes but i can see the table the shoe is
sitting on and the background behind the shoe, is there a way to cut
the shoes out in Photoshop so the background is removed?

Thanks

you could also use quick mask or the tragic wand tool (set this to different tolerances for best effert) or the quick select tool, and like lord said

I highly recommend using the quick mask tool, its a bit harder than using the Lasso or the magic wand, but your results will be much better. Also you can always go back and edit your mask to make fine tune adjustments later on.

In my opinion that sounds slower, but I suppose it really depends on your style. Using the quick mask tool requires a steady hand and liberal use of keyboard shortcuts to get the most out of it. Like most things to do with Photoshop, do whatever feels best to you. Once you are under the crunch of a deadline, you will discover what you are fastest at.
