PhotoScissors can help you separate out hair from backgrounds

Hair is one of those objects that are extremely hard to work with, the others being fur and flames. If you attempt to remove the background around hair directly, let me assure you, the results won't make you happy.

So, here is a simple way to change or replace the background when a person in the picture has a great hairstyle.

Step 1: Upload the image and PhotoScissors will automatically remove the background

Step 2: Highlight the hair

The complexity of hair in image processing comes from the fact that hair is semi-transparent. So, a binary "yes or no" mask fails to produce a realistic cut-out. We need to apply a transparent mask. To tell PhotoScissors where the hair is, select the yellow marker and paint the corresponding areas. Like this:

Step 3: Change the background

Now, to replace the background of the photo, switch to the Background tab on the right side and change the background to colored, an image, or leave it transparent.
