Welcome back to the

I'm Jesus Ramirez.

In this video, I'm going to show you how to change the color of a background in Photoshop.

This is going to be a fast and easy technique that anyone should be able to follow along,

even if you're a beginner.

Okay, let's get started.

We're going to work with this image of this model.

She is, of course, in a white background, and what we're going to do is change the background

color to anything that we want.

For this tutorial so that you can follow along, your image will need a white background.

If your image does not have a white background, then I have a tutorial on making backgrounds.

I'll place a link down below in the description.

Once you get your white background you can come back and follow this tutorial.

The first step is to make a selection out of our model so we can separate her from the

background, and we can use the quick selection tool for that.

In older versions of Photoshop you can just click and drag and make a selection out of our model.

But in Photoshop CC 2019, you actually have the select subject button

which is a button that uses artificial intelligence, known as Adobe Sensei, to analyze an image

and select the subject of the image.

So when you click on this button, Photoshop will ask you if you want to discard any active selections.
