How to Create Deep Etch Myself with Adobe Photoshop

If you are willing to accomplish your small cut-out photo background project by yourself instead of hiring a professional background removal service provider, please follow the following steps to create a deep etch on your image. Different photo cut-outs methods include background erasers, color separation, and pen tool selection. We will discuss all these methods one by one.

Method One: Color Separation Technique


Open the image in Photoshop, copy the background layer, and start working on the duplicated background layer. Keep the original background layer untouched.


Go to the channel layer. Select each channel layer separately. Check which channel selection makes the most difference between the image object and background.

Now, go to the levels adjustment panel: Image>Adjustments>Levels

Adjust the levels to make the object darker, like in the screenshot.

Finally, you have to make a selection and cut out photos from the original background. You can select by pressing Ctrl/Command + single click on the chosen channel layer. Inverse the selection by pressing Ctrl/Command + shift + i. Apply soft feathers from 0.2-0.4 pixels to make the cut-out smooth. Go to the original image layer(untouched layer) and cut out with Ctrl/Command + j. Congratulation, you are done with color separation deep etching.

Method Two: Background Eraser Tools

Sometimes, photographers apply background eraser tools to remove the background. The limitation of this tool is that it can not extract the subject of multiple color photographs accurately without the help of other deep etching techniques. If we consider a model image, we will understand the difference correctly. It requires a hand-drawn clipping path along with background eraser tool treatment for better extraction.

Please have a look at the video tutorial to learn how to apply image masking technique with the help of the Photoshop eraser tool to extract model images:

Method Three: Deep etching with the Help of Pen Tool

Most of the product photographs are deep-edged with the Photoshop pen tool. We will show you how to deep etch with pen tool selection.

Open the image in Photoshop first. You can open images in Photoshop in different ways. The simplest way to open the photo in Photoshop is to right-click on the photo and then select open with Photoshop. You can also drag the image and drop it into Photoshop to open the file. If there are multiple files to open, select all the files and drag them all on the opened Photoshop program to open all images at a time.

Select the Photoshop pen tool from the toolbar.

Adjust pen tool mode according to the given screenshot.

Take a new path layer from the layer panel.

Apply 0.3-0.5 pixel feather depending on the image resolution for smooth cut out. Now, press Ctrl/Command+j. It will cut out the subject in a transparent layer. You are done with your deep etching project.
