How do I remove the background from an image?

Aug 12, 7:09PM EDT0

Hey Christina removing background from an image is very easy :-


Open the image you want to edit in Paint. By default, the Color 2 icon is white, which is the color used to replace anything you cut, erase or delete. Click the "Color 2" icon in the Ribbon if you want to change this color.


Click the eyedropper-shaped "Color Picker" icon if you want to match a color already in the photo to use as the background color. Click on the color in the photo with the Color Dropper. The Color 1 swatch is changed to that color.


Click "Edit Colors." Note that the color you chose from the photo appears as the currently selected color. Click the "Add to Custom Colors" button to add this color to the color palette.


Click the "Color 2" icon and then click the new color that was added to the palette. This changes Color 2 to the new color you picked from the photo.


Crop out any unneeded details in the photo's background. Click the "Select" icon in the Ribbon, drag the cursor over the main object and then click the "Crop" icon. The more of the background that is cropped out, the less cutting and erasing you will have to do.


Click the down-arrow below the Select icon and click the "Free-Form Selection" option. Using this tool to cut away large sections of the background will save you a lot of time, compared to using the eraser tool.


Drag the cursor around an area of the background to encircle it. Note that when you close the loop you have traced, the line you drew automatically becomes a rectangle. Ignore this rectangle. The line you traced is still there even though you can't see it. Right-click the area you traced and select "Delete."


Zoom in to the photo using the Zoom slider in the bottom right corner of the Paint window. Click the "Eraser" in the ribbon and drag it across the remaining background to delete the pixels. Use short strokes when erasing. If you accidentally erase a part of the object you want to keep, just press "Ctrl-Z" to undo the last stroke.


Zoom out of the photo to make sure you have erased everything. Quite often, you may find colored pixels remaining around the object or in the background in the locations where you used the Free-Form Selection tool. When you're finished, click the "File" menu and select "Save As" to save the image with a new file name.

How do I Shrink an Image Using MS Paint and Word?

Aug 12, 12:11PM EDT50

Enlarging or Shrinking an Image

1.Locate the image you wish to resize and right-click it. Doing so will prompt a drop-down menu.

2.Hover the mouse cursor over Open with. This option is toward the middle of the drop-down menu.

3.Click Paint. It's beside a blue icon depicting a paint palette. Doing so will open your selected image in the Paint program.

4.Click Resize. It's on the middle-right side of the "Image" section at the top of the Paint window.

5.Make sure "Percentage" has a black dot next to it. If not, click the circle next to "Percentage" to ensure that your image's changes will be measured in percents.

  • Your image will start at 100 for both the vertical and horizontal values, so changing these to "75" will reduce your image to three quarters of its original size.
  • If you know the exact horizontal or vertical pixel count you want, it's okay to click the circle next to "Pixels" instead.

6.Make sure "Maintain aspect ratio" is checked. If there is no checkmark in the box next to "Maintain aspect ratio", click the box--otherwise, any changes you make to one aspect of your image (e.g., vertical size) won't scale with the other aspects.

7.Type in a new number next to "Horizontal" or "Vertical". As long as you're maintaining the aspect ratio, changing one value's number will change the other value as well.

  • Increasing these numbers will enlarge the photo, while lowering them will shrink the photo.

8.Click OK. Doing so will apply your changes to the image.

9,Hold down Ctrl and press S. This will save your changes to the image.

Is there a more efficient way to add uniform spacing to center an image?

Aug 11, 11:14PM EDT0

I'm using "Distribute Horizontal Centers" in Photoshop, but it might be the wrong tool for the job. I'm guessing Photoshop will be distributing the CENTER of each text object and aligning that, so long links won't have as much 'spacing' either side.
