How to Make an Image with a Transparent Background in Photoshop?

Creating a transparent background for your product image in Photoshop opens up a wide range of eye-catching display options for your featured products. For example, a transparent background gives you the ability to place your product against a background that dynamically changes colors. On responsively designed sites, a featured product with a transparent background can interact differently with its background depending on the user’s screen size.

Your website’s logo files should also be created with transparent backgrounds so that you can place the logo anywhere on your site, regardless of the page’s background color.

Using Photoshop to create a transparent background, and then saving the file in the appropriate web-ready format, is remarkably easy once you know what you’re doing. We’ll walk you through this simple process in the tutorial below.
