Let's continue exploring some more tools available in Articus.




In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to:

  • Use the eraser tool

  • Use the lasso tool

  • & detect and remove backgrounds

Use the eraser tool


Within a project, you'll find the tools menu at the top, which includes options like Erase, Lasso, and Backgrounds.



To use the eraser tool click on the eraser if you wish to remove a part of your project.



At the bottom, you will see an option to set the eraser size.


Once you've adjusted the eraser size select the portion of your project you'd like to erase.


Use the Lasso tool


The Lasso tool allows you to perform various actions such as cutting, copying, pasting, and deleting specific parts of a selected image. For example, if you want to copy a portion of your image, select the Lasso tool.



Place the points of the Lasso tool around the area you'd like to copy, ensuring that the last corner connects with the first corner.



Use the appropriate keyboard shortcut (e.g., Command + C on Mac) to copy that area of your image, and then paste it using Command + V.



Detect and remove backgrounds


Articus also offers the option to detect or preview a background before removing it. Click on the Background tool.



Select the "Detect Background" option.



You'll see a preview of what the background would look like.



You can then choose to either remove the background or cancel the operation.
