There’s a new website, called remove.bg, that will remove the backgrounds of any image in seconds. And the best things is is that it’s completely free.
Remove.bg will save creators loads of times. After uploading a image to the site, it will automatically remove the background in under five seconds. While this is certainly handy for creators, it can also prove to be a good tool for casual users not familiar with Photoshop.
We’ve tested the site out, and it works well. It can even distinguish fine hairs from the background. That’s hard for even skilled creators to do.
A great tool for editorial designers
This website will be helpful for journalists. Often times they are cutting out images to place text and titles around them. Plus, they are often working on tight deadlines. Remove.bg works well enough to be used professionally.
But any creator who edits photos could use this, like any video creators making a thumbnail. Practically, if you need to do any kind of design, this tool could be of use. Overlaying an image over text could literally just take a minute.
It’s not perfect
However, the site isn’t always picture perfect, as you can see below:
You can test it out yourself at remove.bg.
