Hello, I need to cut out foods from different images.

What is the easiest way to render or cut out the images using Photoshop?

Here is an example of what I need to cut out:

Well, I'm lazy, so i downloaded the Extract tool for CS4 (Depending what photoshop version you have)

I believe the Extract tool (Filter - > Extract) was stopped in CS3, but you can download it from Adobe.

That one seems to be for Macintosh? I have Windows XP.

What exactly does that do anyway?

If you just google "Extract Filter CS4" or something like that in google (CS4 or whatever version you have) I'm sure its available for XP too!

I have the extract tool, it takes forever.

Is there any easier way to cut out the image?

The pen tool in the toolbox is ideal for such cutting, or else you can also use the polygonal lasso tool. I can help you cut out the images at a very low cost. If you need any help you can pm me.

there simply is no simple 'slam dunk' way to extract backgrounds....The best way is to have total design control over the product photo shoot and use white backdrops and appropriate lighting. I've tried every third party plugin available but none really work all that well. If I must work with photos provided that weren't properly photographed...then it's the pen tool

It really depends on the image. The extract tool takes forever and I prefer the pen tool to cut out most of my images.

If you have a plain background and a nice solid shape, you can use the background eraser tool.

Or, you can just mask the image and paint out what you do not want. I have been using that method a lot more lately to help get the little bits of hair wispies that drive me nuts, but I need to have.
