In those, polygonal lasso, magic wand and eraser are mostly used and traditional background removing tools. We cannot get high quality images by removing background from those tools. Instead we can use pen tool for removing background to get the best quality images. It is a bit more difficult to use pen tool to remove background but we get the best quality of images by it.

    Intro

    Removing the background from a photograph can be a really tricky task, clipping path like particularly if the subject you want to cut out has lots of hair, or if the background is exceedingly complex. Here, we take you through the process of removing a background from an image using Photoshop to help you overcome that challenge.

    First, you'll need to open the image you wish to remove the background from in Adobe Photoshop (you can get Photoshop here). Here, I'm using a photograph I took of a giraffe at Colchester Zoo to demonstrate this technique, which has a very defined boundary between the bit we want to keep (the giraffe) and the background. For images with fine detail around what you want to cut out – such as hair – see our tutorial on how to cut out hair in Photoshop.
    I'm using Adobe CC, but the background removal technique detailed here will work in Photoshop CS5 and above, though some elements may look slightly different.
    Once you've chosen the image you want to remove the background from and opened it in Photoshop, you can move on to the first step.

    You exact requirement is not getting clear and so I would say that it would be great if you attach an image that you wish to edit.
