Different Photoshop Shadow tricks for Product Images
Different photoshop shadows can elevate your product images from amateur to professional. If you spend time on your product photography and the post-production process, your customers will feel more comfortable spending their time and money with you. It doesn’t take a big budget or massive team to create professional product images; it just takes desire and attention to detail.
So far in this guide, we’ve covered the basic shadows:
- Open the image that you want to edit– Start by opening an image that you want to remove the background and to demonstrate this technique, it must have a very defined boundary between the images since we want to keep (the shoe ) and the background.
- Select the Pen tool – If you do need a more accurate edge to your selection, you will be better off using the Pen Tool. Press the “ P “ or select the pen tool from the toolbox. There are a number of other “Pens” under the Pen Tool, but for the most part you can do these with just the pen tool by knowing where to select the anchor points. In using pen tool will provide a very clean clipping path.
- Start Drawing a “Path”– you need to do clipping path in every edge of the picture ( the shoe ). The line you are creating with the Pen Tool is called a “Path”. You will “Click and Drag” to set the anchor, then adjust the vector from each anchor to trace the path in a very clean manner, leaving no edge not path.
- Right click on the Path and Make Selection– to avoid blurriness and sharpness of the image’s edge. Ctrl + J to duplicate the layer and view the traced path.
- Create a Fill Layer– To ensure your background has been completely removed, from the top menu, choose Layer then choose New Fill Layer then choose Layer Via Copy. If you’re done learning the Pen Tool, you will be able to better decide which tool you should use for the job. The Pen Tool can give your image a more professional clipping path look when it is needed and as easy as that, it is not time consuming.
