The Magic Extractor Tool
The Magic Extractor Tool in Photoshop Elements allows you to quickly and easily remove your subject (or anything else) from the background in your photos.
This video continues on and shows how you can then place your subject into a different photograph to have a completely different background.
But even if you don't want to bring it into another photo sometimes it's just nice to get rid of a busy and distracting background. You could just as easily place your "extracted" subject over a Layer filled with all white or some other solid color.
This is just one more weapon that Photoshop Elements lets you add to your arsenal for editing your photos.
