Last but not least, Method 7 describes the use of the Magic Wand tool. This tool seems to be popular with a lot of Photoshop users, but I don't really use it too much. Only in certain situations have I found it really useful and time saving. Most of the time though, the selections are just too rough and I find myself spending too much time adjusting the tolerance. Anyway, here is how to use it.
1. Open the image in Photoshop. Select the "Magic Wand" tool and set the tolerance. A higher tolerance will let you select a larger range of colors and a lower tolerance will only let you select colors very close to the original color.
2. In this case, the first selection did not grab all of the background. By holding "shift", I can add to the selection. Holding "Alt" allows me to remove parts of the selection. In a short amount of time, most of the background is selected and can be removed.
