Removing background from photos is very common, but it is also a slow, manual and painful process. It turns out that someone managed to solve this problem. A new free online tool called Remove.bg can remove the background from a photo in about five seconds. You no longer need Photoshop or any other complicated photo editing software to quickly delete the background in the photo.
All you have to do is select a photo from the computer on the website, upload it, and you will receive the result within a few seconds. Remove.bg allows you to download the resulting image in PNG format with a transparent background.
This free online tool uses AI (artificial intelligence) to understand the background and foreground patterns in photos. The only thing to note here is that currently only the background can be removed from portrait shots. AI searches for people in photos and removes the background from them. Another drawback is that, as of now, you can only download photos up to 500×500 pixels in size.
The website also claims that if developers want to integrate free tools into their applications or websites, it will release easy-to-use APIs soon. It also stated that they hope to allow users to download photos at higher resolutions in the future.
We tried it ourselves and it worked well. It can remove the background from most portrait shots where the foreground is very clear.
It does struggle a bit when the background and foreground appear blurred (see image below).
We even tried to remove the background from the animal photos, but the effect was not good, and the AI was smart enough to demand real humans.
For now, no matter what your use case is, this is a fun and easy way to remove the background from your photos. It is 100% free, and the work can be done immediately, usually Adobe Photoshop and other photo editing tools can be used immediately. Remove.bg is a useful tool for you to add bookmarks immediately.
