Step 2
This is what I mention in the first paragraph of this tutorial. To change the photo background, we need to separate / extract the photo model from his background. There are so many way in Photoshop which can be use to do this. For example, you can use:

  • Selection tool (e.g. Marque, Lasso, Magic wand tool)
  • Pen tool (to create path)
  • Color Range technique
  • Channel

You must make the selection around the baseball player, just like image below. Remember, you can use any selection technique as described above to do this.
