How to save a cut-out and use it later

Learn how to create cut-out images in Photo Studio that are ready to use in all your photomontages. This is handy for any images you regularly add to pictures, including logos and watermarks.

Step 1 – Open your background image

Open the photo that you want to add the cut-outs to, then click the Photomontage tab in the right-hand panel.

Step 2 – Cut out your foreground image(s)

In the My Cut-out images section of the Photomontage tab, click “Cut out“. Then select the image that you want to cut out from.

This photo opens in a new window. Now you can remove the background by highlighting it with the red “Background to erase” marker.

Tip: if any areas are removed by accident, highlight them with the green “Subject to keep” marker to bring them back.


Before and after background removal


  • Once you’re happy with your image cut-out, click Save and add to the library

Save your cut-out object

Back in the main Photo Studio workspace, you’ll notice that your new cut-out is now available in the My cut-out images section of the Photomontage tab. It will stay here unless you delete it. Repeat this process as many times as you like to build up a library of cut-outs to use in your photomontages.

Step 3 – Add your cutouts to the background

To add one of your cut-outs to the background image, simply drag and drop it onto the workspace.

Adding a cut-out to the new background

  • Use the image handles to arrange the cut-outs against the background.
  • Adjust opacity to help the objects blend into the photo.

Remember that your cutouts are now saved in the My cutout images section, ready to use in your next photomontage.
