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 AI”. Then select the image that you want to cut out from.
The image opens in a new window and Photo Studio removes the background automatically.
Tip: if the cut-out isn’t perfect first time, activate “Fine-tune Selection” to improve it.
- Remove areas of the background by highlighting them with the red “Background to erase” marker.
- If any areas are removed by accident, highlight them with the green “Subject to keep” marker to bring them back.
- Once you’re happy with your image cut-out, click “Save and add to the library”.
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.
Photo Studio also saves a copy of your cut-out with transparent background to the original folder on your computer.
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.
- 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 cut-outs are now saved in the “My cut-out images” section, ready to use in your next photomontage.
