Adobe Photoshop Background Eraser Tool

What is Background Eraser Tool?

The Background Eraser tool erases pixels on a layer to transparency as you drag. You can remove the background while preserving the edges of an item in the foreground. By specifying various tasting as well as tolerance options, you can control the range of the transparency and the sharpness of the boundaries.

The background eraser samples the color in the center of the brush, additionally called the hotspot, and deletes that color anywhere it shows up inside the brush. It additionally executes color extraction at the edge of any kind of foreground items, to ensure that color halos are not visible if the foreground item is later on pasted right into another image.

Note: The background eraser bypasses the lock transparency setup of a layer.
