How to strip with Photoshop: As we got to see several guides, Photoshop is a very powerful tool, through which it is possible to do practically anything on digital photos. However, this does not mean that it is a “magical” program capable of intelligently reconstructing elements that are not present in the photos. What am I referring to?

Many readers have asked me how to strip with Photoshop the people featured in the photos. As can be easily understood, this is an operation that is impossible to carry out in a “magical” way, considering that the elements present under the clothes are not immortalized in the images (fortunately, I would say!). But perhaps even without special powers a little bit you can do the same, staying within the limits of legality and decency.

If you are ready to start, I would therefore say to ban the chatter and immediately start getting into the heart of this tutorial. Strength and courage: make yourself comfortable, take all the time you need to concentrate on reading the next paragraphs and, more importantly, try to implement the “tips” I am about to give you, so as to be able to complete the your “business” without any difficulty.

Preliminary information

Given the topic covered in this article, before illustrating how to strip with Photoshopit seems only right to provide you with some preliminary information regarding some incorrect behaviors that you must absolutely avoid in carrying out the procedure in question.

First of all, I would like to tell you that with this article I will not explain how to use Photoshop to completely undress the subjects portrayed in the photos, perhaps to create explicit / compromising images with which to embarrass other people. This behavior, in addition to potentially constituting a crime punishable by law, would also constitute a serious damage to the sensibility of others and would be reprehensible from an ethical and moral point of view.

As it should be, I will simply explain how to remove portions of clothing that excessively cover the subject or part of it (e.g. long sleeves). For this reason, do not use the information given in this article for less than noble purposes, because I do not take any responsibility for the consequences that could derive from such a wicked action. Understood? Well then I’d say we can actually get started!
