This is assuming you have Adobe CS2-3 which is what I have on my Windows XP with 250 gigs, AMD Athlon 64 processor. I'll be giving instructions for CS3. First, you can do an extract (it's on the the filters menu) from there you trace around the object and extract, but that's going to leave a white area in place, unless what you want extracted is what you're going to keep. Next, you can go the the tools area and pick the "magnetic lasso" and click around the object and once you've created what is known as "marching ants" around the object, hit control C, followed immediately by control V, which is copy and paste and you'll have the object on a layer all by its lonesome. Hope that helps.

cutting object photoshop

Make sure you are in the layer that the image is on. Either use the rectangular marquee and drag it over the object in the picture (if you click on shift - PC's - at the same time it will keep all sides of the square exactly equal).

Or, as mentioned above use the lasso to roughly draw around the object and either simply cut...or cut and paste and it will appear in a new layer.

Or, if you want to be very fancy, use the magnetic lasso which will automatically follow the lines of the image you want to cut out (provided there is a good strong contrast between the object and the background)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
