5.Now we need to “cut out” the windows. You can do this with the ERASER


I used the Magic wand. Click on the windows with magic wand. If you get an error message, go to eraser, erase what magic wand highlights, After you do that once, you should be able to just click with the magic wand and hit delete key on keyboard.


6.Once you have “cut out” the windows, save this as a JPEG

(File- save as- name it and change format to JPEG)
