Separating objects of an image and making Separate layers in Adobe Photoshop

  • If you have an image and you want to make layers out of all the objects in that image, use the “selection tool”.
  • Select the area of the image you want to make a different layer and right click .
  • Select “layer via copy” or “layer via cut” , your object becomes a separate layer.

  • If the options  “layer via copy” or “layer via cut”  are unavailable or any error occurs , there is a possibility that you will not be able to cut your object , in that case we will have to rasterize the image/ shape so that it is converted into a layer and all operations are available.
