3. Now we gotta select our subject, i.e. the main person or object in the photo, like the cute Android in this picture. You can use various tools in Photoshop for selecting the subject, like Quick Selection Tool, Magic Wand, Marquee or Lasso Tool.

4. With your selection tool still selected (no matter which one), right-click on your selection & choose Layer via Cut. This will make 2 layers, one has just your selection in it, while the other only has the background.

6. Drag this new Background Layer below your selected subject’s layer & that’s it folks! You’ve got a new background for your subject ๐Ÿ˜€
