How to Change Image Background Online

I'll make it short: you can replace the background of a photo without the need for in-depth Photoshop skills. In fact, you don't need any photo editing skills at all. How can this be?

"This photo is perfect except for the background which is..."well, let's just say "bad". Have you ever had a thought like this? You have probably even made an attempt or two to edit the picture with the ruined background in a photo editor, to no avail. Surely, not all of us are designers or at least IT savvy. So, here is a way for the rest of humanity to change the background scene of any photograph – the PhotoScissors online tool.

Step 1: Select the photo you want to edit

Open PhotoScissors online, click the Upload button then select an image file. The program will remove the background from an image and display it in the browser:

The left part of the screen is for editing, while the right part displays the final result.

Normally, you would have to tinker with various selection tools, but PhotoScissors automatically removes the background from an image for you, and even if neural networks makes a mistake, you can correct the result using green marker and eraser tools.

Simple, right? Green mask shows the objects that should stay. When you change the mask, the preview on the right side reflects any changes you make. By default, PhotoScissors applies a transparent background to the picture, but you can change it to white or any other color or even another image.

Step 2: Change the background

You can keep background transparent or change it to any color or even set another image as new background.

Switch to the "Background" tab in the right side and select appropriate mode:

  • To change the background color, set the mode option to "Solid Color" and then select a new color.
  • To change the background image, set the mode option to "Image", then click the "Select Image" button and select which image you would like to use as the new background.
