    Hi,

    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?

    Thanks

    You most certainly can. I don't use photoshop, so I can't name the tools, but a quick Google search yielded this page, which looked helpful.

    Caleb's link provides a good overview of the various approaches to this problem. I'd recommend studying up on the masking tutorial in particular.
