Sometimes, we have to remove background from an image, which has become easier to do than ever.  As a non-designer tasked with quickly producing social media posts and blog assets, I often need to isolate subjects to spotlight them against clean backdrops. This allows me to highlight personalities and products effectively within my content.

Luckily, today’s design tools make this easier than ever, even for amateur editors like myself. Recently, I tested background removal capabilities within Fotor, a free online photo editor.

Here’s how easy the process is:

Automatically remove the background in an image

Log in and click on BG Remover from the main screen.

Then since you picked the background remove from the get-go, the removal starts immediately.
