Hello guys, this time I am going to write a tutorial on a bit different topic. This time I am not going to retouch a portrait or a landscape, but I am going to write a tutorial that will be helpful to your professional life.

Last time I wrote a tutorial on the Difference between JPG and JPEG which might be helpful to you.

For this tutorial, I am going to use a document that is provided by my college (not a good choice; haha). This is the first document that I saw when I was looking for a printed paper. I took a picture of it. I didn’t use flash or any other type of effect. I wanted to take a picture that looks as natural as possible.

Here’s the final result.

Here’s the EXIF data of the image.

and here’s the picture of the document.

So let’s begin the tutorial.

Step 1

The first thing we need to do is to remove those unwanted background. In the case, the yellow color table is my background. I am going to use Perspective Crop Tool to crop the image. Grab it from the tool panel or press Shift+C again and again until it comes. In case you want to learn more about Perspective Crop Tool , read my tutorial on How to Change Perspective of an Image using Perspective Crop Tool.

Now make a outline as shown below.

Make sure you align the vertices properly by zooming in the image. Press Enter/Return when you are done.
