Most of us use photographs regularly, either on our PC or on mobile devices. What’s more, with the phones that we have today and that we always carry, we can achieve really interesting results. And it is necessary to take into account that these multimedia elements have become basic at the moment.
The photographs we take, or those of others, are used in all kinds of environments and types of use, both professional and more domestic. Hence the increasing importance of knowing how to use an application that is capable of treating them. This is the case that we are going to talk about in these same lines. Whether they are more advanced or basic, the appropriate thing in these cases is that we use some application, web or local, to improve, adapt or correct those images .
Well, in this case we are going to focus on a type of modification that at first might seem to be within reach of only professionals. Specifically, we are referring to the possibility of removing the background of any photograph that we upload. However, largely thanks to current technology, this is something that almost everyone can do. This is due to the internal techniques that some applications use to achieve this.
Web applications to remove the background from photos
What’s more, at these moments we can carry out these types of tasks using some useful free web applications , as we will see. This allows us to not have to download anything to the PC. Thus, these types of tasks can be very useful to us in the event that we want to change the current background to a blank one.
It may also be the case that we need to extract certain elements from the same image with which we are working. Therefore, to achieve this, the first thing we must do is eliminate the background that is bothering us, and then better outline certain objects in the image as such. Therefore, next we are going to talk about a series of web applications of this type. That is, online programs that focus on facilitating the removal of photo backgrounds.
We are going to start with an interesting proposal that, as we mentioned, is responsible for removing the background from our photographs. Of course, to start you must know that these should not exceed 700 x 700 resolution points, which limits us a bit. To access this platform we can do it from this link .
Of course, if we want to use photos of up to 2000 x 2000 points, we will only have to log in on the platform for free. Once the photo is loaded as such, the process is carried out in a few seconds, after which it offers us the possibility of downloading it already clean in the background .
Another interesting alternative of this type is found with RemoveBg. The operation in this case is quite similar, since at first we only have to drag or load the original photograph. However, what we have noticed is that in this case we do not have the size limitations that we have mentioned before. In addition, another point in favor here is that the background extraction takes place immediately. To finish we will say that we can download the resulting file in high or low resolution, which also helps. In order to test this that we tell you, we can do it from this link .
Another interesting alternative in this same sense, we find it with the web application that Clipping Magic proposes. Here we find another proposal of this same type that helps us to eliminate the background of the photographs. In this case, in addition to being able to directly drag the image as such, it also allows us to add a URL to deal directly with images from the internet. This is something that can be very useful to us on many occasions.
But that’s not all, since this proposal, once the removal process is carried out, presents us with an integrated image editor . As you can imagine, this one, although simple, allows us to perform some basic retouching tasks on the resulting photograph. This way we can improve even more and adapt it to our needs. We will be able to test all this from here . Of course, as a negative point, say that the platform, in its free plan, adds a watermark to the resulting photo.
Now we are going to talk about another alternative similar to those discussed above, but with some significant differences. The first thing we must know is that to access this application, it is something that we achieve from this link . Then, as in the rest, we just have to drag the photograph in question with which we are going to work.
We say that in this case the work is a little different, because it is not automatic. We are the ones who, from an integrated editor, will have to select and adjust the object that we want to extract from the photo to eliminate the remaining background . For this we find a series of functions that help us in all this. Therefore this program is a little more complicated, more if we do not have much knowledge on the subject. We have a help video and we can also add a background color once the part that interests us has been extracted.
To start working with this proposal, the first thing we do is access the web application as such from this link . At first we will tell you that in this case we did not find the size limitations that we have seen in other proposals. Of course, as a negative point we can comment that to use it, we must register with the service.
This is something that we can carry out, for example, through a Google account. Once this is done, we just have to load the image, and the background removal process is carried out automatically in a few seconds.
This is another proposal of this type that in this case combines automatic background erasure with the manual one. This is because once we have uploaded the original photo to the application, its automatic operation does not work as well as we would like. This is because it does not cleanly remove the background as we have seen in other applications before.
Thus, he proposes a couple of results, so that we can choose the one that interests us most, and carry out some subsequent editing work. Therefore this application is not the most suitable for those who want to directly remove this background. In order to try all this first hand, we can do it from this link .
In this case that we expose you here, several of the advantages that we have seen in other alternatives are shown. To start we find that its use is free and you do not need any registration. Therefore, after accessing its official website , we can now upload the original photograph .
Based on the tests we have carried out, the background erasing process automatically does it quite well and precisely. But yes, at the same time we will have the possibility of making some subsequent adjustments if it is not to our liking. For this we have a simple internal editor.
To access the Fotofuze web application, the first thing we do is access its official website . Once in it, in this case in order to use it we need to carry out a mandatory registration, although free. Then we can upload the image we want to treat. Of course, unlike others, here the process is not automatic, since we will have to mark the entire area of the image that we want to extract.
After this, after a few seconds the application create an album in our account with the final result. Say that here we can create several of these albums with photos without a background to use later.
Other programs and utilities
Similarly, and for these tasks that we discussed, we can also draw on various applications and utilities that we use locally.
This is the case of Background Eraser , an application that we installed on our Windows computer and that belongs to the platform seen before BGEraser. In fact, its operation is very similar once we have downloaded and installed it from this link .
Thus, through the interface that presents us after its installation, we will have the possibility of dragging the contents to be treated. Once loaded, we mark it to start the process as such, something that will take a few seconds. Therefore, as we can see, its operation is very similar to what we saw previously. Once we have finished, a new window appears from which we download the resulting file .
Photoshop plugin Remove.bg
Relating to another of the proposals mentioned in web applications, Remove.bg, to say that it has recently launched a proprietary plugin for Photoshop . We can use this in this popular Adobe photo editor so we can remove the backgrounds of our photos directly from it. Say that those interested can get it from this link .
Despite the fact that the Adobe program itself presents us with some of its own functions to carry out these tasks, this plugin is trying to make our work easier. Of course, when the process is carried out automatically, the results will not be the same as when we do it manually.
