Default Removing background from images


I am designing a catalog however the photos have a background, for
example the pictures are of shoes but i can see the table the shoe is
sitting on and the background behind the shoe, is there a way to cut
the shoes out in Photoshop so the background is removed?

I'll assume the background isn't one flat color... correct ?

The most accurate way is to use the path tool.
Create a new path layer and use the pen tool to draw around the shoe... You can zoom in nice and close and crop it real close. You may want to blur the edges slightly using: Select > Feather.
