What would the world be without applications like Photoshop? Computer image processing has revolutionized publishing and the visual arts in general. Best of all, anyone with the necessary skills can create stunning images using only their computer and the right software.
However, the key word here is skill . It takes a lot of skill and knowledge to create stunning rendered images. Of course, modern photo editors are much easier to use and have a lot of automation tools, but there are things that only an experienced human eye can achieve.
The list is getting shorter, however, and now Remove.bg has automated one of the most important first steps in an editing project – background delete and delete.
Removing an object from an image so you can insert it into a new scene has always been quite tedious. There are hundreds of tutorials on the Internet that sell different shortcuts for perfect background removal.
Remove.bg uses advanced cloud-based machine learning technology to do it for you in seconds. If you regularly work with photography, you will realize that this is a real turning point. So let’s get down to business and see what you need to do to get the background of your photo removed from the air.
How to use Remove.bg
The first and most obvious step is to go to Remove.bg
There is no doubt about it. You can immediately choose to upload your own image or link to it using a URL. For our purposes, we will simply link to a public domain image from Pixabay .
So then click, enter the url and paste the link to the image into the popup. Then click “OK”.
If all went well, you should see the original image as well as the cutout with the background removed. In some cases, the image may still need a little cleaning up, but you’ve literally saved hours of work, so it’s a fair trade off in the end!
I tried this on 5-6 different images with different backgrounds and it worked flawlessly. It also worked great with photos taken in portrait mode from my iPhone. However, some photos not taken in portrait mode, where the subject was a little far away, required a little cleaning. Enjoy!
