One of the most commonly used methods to remove background is with the Pen Tool.  Most people use the Pen Tool to simply hand draw a clipping path around the image, in order to remove the background from the image. The Magic Wand Tool seems to work the best when you have a simple image that has a solid background behind it. The idea behind this tool is to isolate the color in a layer. All you need to do is click on this tool and use it to cut out the background and leave the image behind. Another handy tool to remove the background around the image is the Polygonal Lasso Tool.  This can be particularly useful when you have a moderately complex item like a bird on a fence, for instance. You would start by duplicating the background layer so you have something to go by as you work.

The Magic Eraser Tool is used to remove background color for moderately complex images. This tool is similar to the magic wand tool except that the eraser tool that allows you to remove the original background from a photo and turn it transparent so that you can place your photo on a new background, or place it into an altogether new photo. It is done by changing the color you click on to transparent. The Background Eraser Tool is another great tool that works really well to remove background on photos that contain animal images, trees or even hair on a model. This tool has some of the same unique features as the magic eraser tool like – it changes the background layer into a regular unlocked layer by simply clicking once with it on your picture.
