NSL WEEK 246- Adobe Photoshop “Magic Eraser Tool”

I’ll be honest, I didn’t mess with these tools that much. Thanks to this Never Stop Learning project, I’m learning about them and brining them into my workflow.

This week I looked into the Magic Eraser Tool in Adobe Photoshop.


Adobe Photoshop Magic Eraser

You’ll find the Magic Eraser tool in the same stack as the regular Eraser Tool. Hold down the shift key while hitting the “E” key a couple times and you’ll cycle through the tools in the stack.

The Magic Eraser Tool is used to remove a color range from your image. You click on one pixel, it removes similar pixels.

Working with the Tolerance is very important. If you just run with the default settings, you might not get the result you’re looking for. A low tolerance is going to extract a smaller color range.

Here I’m using a higher tolerance which is allowing me to extract the entire background.
