Extracting round objects from a background with KJD Designs!

Open any round image in Photoshop. Grab the Elliptical Marquee Tool from the tool bar on the left. Click on little arrow in corner and choose the circle selection to extract it. Before we start using the selection tool we need to highlight the center of the circle. Go to View>Show>Grid

Find the center of the circle, grab the elliptical marquee tool, hold down and , left click on the center of the circle and drag until you select the entire object.

NOTE: Shift key is used in Photoshop to maintain constant proportions. Alt key is used so the first click coincides with the center of the circle. If the Alt key was not used the first click coincides with a point of the circumference. 

Once you have your circle selected, inverse the selection by going to Select>Inverse (or press shift+ctrl+I) and then hit delete. You have now removed the background.
