Removing backgrounds from your photos is very common, but it's also a slow, manual and painful process. It turns out somebody managed to solve it. A new free online tool called Remove.bg is able to remove background from photos in about five seconds. You no longer need Photoshop or any other comprehensive photo editing software to quickly remove background photos.
All you have to do is select a photo from your computer on the web, upload it, and get the results in seconds. Remove.bg allows you to download the resulting PNG image with a transparent background.
The free online tool uses AI (artificial intelligence) to understand background patterns and foreground in photos. The only catch is that at the moment, it can only remove the background from portrait images. AI searches for a person in the photo and removes the background from it. Another disadvantage is that you can download photos up to 500×500 pixels.
The website also claims to release an easy-to-use API soon if developers want to integrate a free tool into their application or website. It also says it tries to allow users to download higher resolution photos in the future.
We tried it ourselves and it works quite well. It is able to remove the background from most portrait images, where it is clear that it is in the foreground.
He struggles a bit when the background and foreground appear blurred (see photo below).
We even tried to remove the background from the animal photographs, but it wasn't quite functional and AI was so smart that she asked for a real human being.
As for now, this is a fun and easy way to remove the background from your photos no matter what your use case may be. It's 100 percent free and does the job that usually uses Adobe Photoshop and other photo editing tools in no time. Remove.bg is one of the useful tools to bookmark immediately.
