How to remove background in illustrator?

Adobe illustrator is a popular graphic design software for both Mac and Windows platforms. The action is not typically to edit and manipulate photographs like photoshop but it used to make your imagination come in a visual shape. However, there are a few techniques that you use to remove the background from your image with an illustrator. It depends on your image complexity to decide which method is suitable for it. But I am explaining here the easiest way of removing any unwanted object from the image with adobe illustrator. So, keep it in your concentration,

STEP-1

First of all, you need an open adobe illustrator which you can find with an icon of Ai. Find the icon on your desktop and click on them to run the program.

STEP-2

Now open the image that you want to edit in illustrator. To open it, you will need to go to the FILE in the menu bar at the top. A drop-down menu will appear by clicking on the file option, choose OPEN option to open a new image or place to insert an image into an existing file. Then select the image file that you want to open and click OPEN.

STEP-3

when you are going to cut out an object from your image, you need to be sure that you don’t miss any of the edges of that image. Because if you won’t get a perfect output, you will get rid of all particular shapes otherwise it will look unprofessional and also looks though it has been edited. So, if you want to get the best result of your work, you need to keep zooming in on your image. Click the icon of the magnifying glass in the toolbar or press Z. to remove the background of an image, you will need to outline the part of the photo that you want to remove. Click the zoom tool through these areas to get high-level precision onto your image.

STEP-4

In adobe illustrator, you will cut out the background form picture with the pen tool. So select the pen tool from the toolbar. Find the icon with a pen symbol on the toolbar to the left or press P. Pen tool will allow you to create a vector line on your preferred object by clicking on your mouse. Each click will drop one anchor point when additional anchor points will come out with a perfect line that will appear at the end of the process.

STEP-5

Click once on the edge of the foreground object, it will place the first anchor point. To surround the foreground object. Notice that there is a line from the first anchor point to your mouse cursor.

STEP-6

Click another spot along the edge of the foreground object. This places another anchor point along the edge of the object you want to trace alone with a line from one anchor point to the next.  You may need to draw a curved line in this pen tool process. If you want to create a curved line with a pen tool, you need to click and drag when placing an anchor point. It will take the line to curve in the opposite direction you drag the mouse. When you want to create another straight line or change the direction of the curve, click the last anchor point before adding another one. If the curves aren’t perfect then don’t get worried because you can adjust them later.

STEP-7

Now use the pen tool to detect the foreground object of your image. You can press the space key to move the image so that images off-screen areas become visible. If you zoomed in your image far enough that you can’t see the entire image it will be helpful to you by doing the process continuously. If colored spaces are blocking the image, click the colored square in the upper left corner. You can click the white swatch with a red line through it to turn the color fill off.

STEP-8

When you have done the process by clicking the first anchor point, you have completed the outline. You will see that the object is fully surrounded by a dotted line. Now you have to click the selection tool that resembles a black mouse cursor in the toolbar on the left. You can simply press V to select the selection tool.

Ok, you have done to draw a vector path around the object of your image, the last thing that will need to do is to right-click on the outline and select ‘Create clipping mask’. The clipping mask will remove all except the foreground object inside the outline. Now save your image by clicking FILE> SAVE AS > type a name for the file in FILENAME, use the drop-down menu next to file format to save your file in a particular format. Then click SAVE.
