An Easier Way to Remove Photo Backgrounds Online

(Works great even if you don't know how to use Photoshop and other tools)

With all the photographry resources available today, snapping shots is easier than ever before. Taking a picture is as easy as pressing a button on your smartphone. You can even apply effects and artistic filters to the result. And all this is great for posting photos on Instagram. But what if you need more? What if you want to upload the photo to a serious website, or to attach it to a resume, or to use it as a corporate profile picture? You're going to need a better background for your photograph.

Here you run into a problem: your photo has a bad or ruined background that you need to get rid of, but you don't know how to work with Photoshop or Gimp, and even Picasa is too much for you. What to do? Use PhotoScissors! This online photo editing tool removes the background of an image in the blink of an eye.

Here is the easiest way to remove the background from your photographs:

Open PhotoScissors online and click the upload button. Select the local image you want to strip of its background and upload it. Done!

PhotoScissors can automatically remove the background from an image, but sometimes it may need help. Once you have your photo on the screen, you can fine-tune the result and mark the locations of foreground and background. And this is easier than it sounds. In PhotoScissors you have two tools for this: the green marker and the red marker. The green marker denotes areas belonging to foreground objects, and the red marker denotes background scenery.

The right part of the screen instantly reflects your changes, so you can see the image with the removed background almost instantaneously.

Note that you can remove portions of green or red markup using the Eraser tool if necessary.

When you're done, click the Save button and save the result as a PNG file. That was easy, wasn't it? This feature of PhotoScissors lets you remove the background from a portrait and replace it with a transparent or solid color background, or with another background image altogether.
