Remove the Background Automatically
Remove.bg, short for “remove background” is the easiest way to remove the background from photos of people. Just upload or share the URL of a photo and the background will be removed instantly. Currently, it only works with images containing at least one person. Update: Remove.bg is no longer limited to just pictures of people, however, free accounts are now limited to low-resolution images.

Removing the background from images can be tedious. Remove.bg removed the background from every picture I have tested as soon as it was uploaded without the need for additional selecting of pixels or outlining of people. It just works; automatically. What makes this site so accurate is that it uses artificial intelligence to detect people in the image; everything else is considered background and therefore removed.
With Remove.bg, students can get green screen affects without a green screen. Just remove the background from an image and use overlay it on the background of your choice. You don’t need a special app, just add your background to any file (document, presentation, etc.) then drop your background-free image on top.
More Than People?
Background Burner is a great tool for removing the background form pictures that aren’t of people. For those pictures, I recommend Background Burner.
