How to Easily Cut Out Glass and Transparent Objects in Photoshop

It may look difficult to cut glass and transparent objects in Photoshop, but it is actually easier than you think. There are various techniques available, but I’ll show you one today that is non-destructive and allows you to alter the effect by adjusting the shadows and highlights with the Levels adjustment layers. 
All you need is a good background for your object and a photograph of it, ideally against a light background.

For this video tutorial, I’ll use Photoshop 2022 but most Photoshop versions should work.
