Hi,

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?

Thanks

You have several options

you can use the pen tool, and draw around, create a path, and invert it, then delete the back ground, or fill it with whatever color you will

the extract tool in photoshop

and there are a variety of third party plug-in programs that can do the same if not better, such as knockout, fluid mask just to name a few

good luck

RTFM, where many techniques for this are described in detail.

The easiest way is to silo the image using Fluid Mask. I've used it for catalog photo production for three years now. Generally, very easy and accurate. I always create a layer copy, use fluid mask, discard the background layer, then save as a CMYK PSD file, NOT a TIFF. This is because programs like InDesign hold the transparent layer of the PSD, but for whatever reason do not hold it as a TIFF.
