I am designing a catalog however the photos have a background, for
example the pictures are of shoes but i can see the table the shoe is
sitting on and the background behind the shoe, is there a way to cut
the shoes out in Photoshop so the background is removed?
There's another quick method you can use if the background is not too busy and there's high contrast in the image (like a chair on a white background). Go to Color range and get it as black and white as you can. Invert the selection and then add a layer mask.
