Images made with Photoshop contain different individual layers which in turn contain different texts, designs, effects and colors. These layers are combined to make your final image in Photoshop. These different layers when combined give you a final PSD file.
While working on Photoshop, you may come along a scenario under which you are adding and removing layers and effect on an image, but then you need to remove a certain section of a layer to make the most suited version of the image.
In Photoshop you can change visibility of different layers. They can be made visible and invisible on your image, and these layers can further be rasterized to remove some part of the corresponding objects that the layers have.
If you wish to remove some part of the image, you may follow the below described procedure to do so:
- Initialize the Photoshop program from the Start menu.
- On the interface that opens up, select File from the menu bar.
- On the drop-down list that appears, click on Open.
- On the Open window, locate and open your target image.
- Back on the interface, from the toolbar box in the right pane, select the Layers tab.
- In the toolbox, right-click on the layer and select Rasterize Layer from the available options.
- On the interface, select any selection tool from the toolbar section, Lasso Tool in this demonstration, and select a part of the image.
- On the selected part of the image, hit the Delete key.
- Select File from the menu bar, and hit Save from the drop-down list to save the
The selected part of the image will be removed from the image, and you will get the desired image.
For selection of a specific part of an image, you can use any of the selecting tool available in the toolbar. If you wish to completely hide a layer from the image, just click the ‘eye’ symbol in the layer toolbar which will make the layer invisible on your image. (The layer will not be deleted.).
