Photoshop - how to get rid of background and resize the image inside it?


I am working on this image:

enter image description here

And I need to get rid of that gray background, and resize the image itself. Right now if I try to resize the image, is says it is pixels: 3285 by 2000.

Just drag the "bg" layer to the trash can on the Layers Panel.

The "bg" layer is locked, so you'll need to first highlight the layer in the Layers Panel, then click the little Lock icon at the top of the Layers Panel. You should then be able to drag the layer to the trash icon on the Layers Panel.


To remove the excess area after the background is removed, choose Image > Trim from the menu. Tick the Transparent Pixels option and click OK.

Reviewing the help files for Photoshop would assist in basic operations of this nature.
