Object Removal from Busy Background


*PSA: You have entered the realm of large file sizes. Your patience is appreciated! Things may take longer than usual to load and respond to user input here.


Before the advent of Adobe's Generative Fill, extracting an object from a busy or distinct background was quite a task, often time-consuming. Generative Fill, however, has significantly streamlined this process, yet there are moments when traditional Photoshop skills are indispensable. Often, seamlessly blending a background involves a synergy of both these methods. Here's an example showing how I used to approach background filling in the pre-Generative Fill era.

Sometimes the galleries will fail to display images and instead display a single color or a very pixelated image. This can happen because some of my portfolio images are very high resolution, (even up to 15,000 pixels across- Photoshop's maximum export size) which can cause them to load slowly for some users. 

Here are two things you can try if you think something weird is going on:

1. If you see a solid color, try refreshing your browser tab.

2. If you see a blurry image, first try waiting a bit if your internet is slow, and if that doesn't work, try step 1.

Also keep in mind that depending on your internet speed, when you click on one of these images for full-screen mode, it can take up to several minutes before you see the full-resolution version!
