    possible duplicate of Alpha Transparency Remove Background Photoshop. Check out that question, it should answer this one. There's also this question as well. – Hanna Aug 25 '13 at 18:12
  • This technique might also work and doesn't require any tracing or erasing. As green is kind of a mid-tone, you'd just have to darken the greens in hue/saturation first. – John Dec 31 '13 at 17:29
  • Magic Wand tool with proper tolerance value might help you to achieve this. – Onur Senture Jan 20 '17 at 8:31

  • Select > Color Range
  • Click a part of the image which is green
  • Adjust the "Fuzziness" slider
  • It turns black and white. – Oskar Skaane Aug 26 '13 at 14:25

    The selection preview is black and white, yes. But once you click OK you have a selection which can be made into a mask. – Scott Sep 25 '13 at 6:47

If it's only 1 image and the subject is not extremely complicated (outline is relatively simple) than I would make a path around the subject and then make a selection out of that. Then hit Select -> Refine Edge and play with the settings there until you get a good separation from the background.

  • I knew that. But I need something more detailed. – Oskar Skaane Aug 25 '13 at 19:03
  • More detailed on the technique I gave or do you need a more refined image result? – CatalinM Aug 26 '13 at 5:27
  • I've update my answer with a new tutorial for complete automation (no paths involved) – CatalinM Aug 26 '13 at 5:36
  • @OskarSkaane The technique CatalinM gave was as descriptive as your question was. If you are looking for a better answer it might help to provide more detailed information or allowing those helping to understand what it is you've done in trying to solve this. – Adam Schuld Aug 26 '13 at 6:41

You can use the magic wand tool to remove it. Search on youtube "removing backgrounds using the magic wand tool" and you will see tons of them showing you how it's done. It's not that difficult. I also know that for after effects you can remove it using the key light plugin and it is very easy to do so as well I learned that here: https://www.udemy.com/learntvads. But back to your question on photoshop it can be done with the magic wand.
