View Full Version : Background white-out..Is there a tool?

02-27-2016, 06:20 PM
Hello! I have been trying to find a way to eliminate all background subject matter leaving only the main focus subject on a white background. I have the latest artrage version on a new macbook pro.
Using the erase tool is extremely time consuming because I would have to erase around very detailed subjects with very few straight lines.
Any suggestions would be very helpful!
Thanks so Much! Regina

Hi regenaz!

It's just like in real life: the most textureless background is Airbrush-Karton (Canvas Settings > Art Papers > Canvas Color: White). Or do you want to erase parts of your painting? Have you tried the Magic Wand (Selection)?

:) :) :) Have tried the magic wand and it sort of does the job. I am needing to clean up background mess on my product photo's. And I have a lot of them. :rolleyes: Thanks Again! Regina

there is a plug in for photoshop that works with artrage but in 32bit called "Killwhite" (i use it and i know it works)

Guess I'm going to have to subscribe to Photoshop.:confused: thanks again! Regina

No need to get Photoshop-- I have Mike and Yael's "KillWhite" filter without it. I don't remember how I installed it, but Photoshop was not involved. Some friendly Rager provided the instructions-- I wish I could remember who it is.

here you have "KillWhite" filter......just put it in the filter folder of Artrage

There are instructions on this page - just scroll down to the Filters section: https://www.artrage.com/manuals/artrage-4/image-adjustment-and-filters/

Important note: Because ArtRage is now 64-bit, a lot of older filters won't work. If you run ArtRage in 32-bit mode, they should work fine. If you need help figuring out which mode you're in, see: https://www.artrage.com/faqs/use-32-bit-photoshop-filters-artrage-4-5/
