Every now and then I take a “great” photo of my family but the background is distracting. I’ve worked hours with editing programs to select the background and then paint it out. Often it works okay but takes a lot of effort.

Then I came across remove.bg. Here’s how they describe themselves:

Remove.bg is a free service to remove the background of any photo. It works 100% automatically: You don’t have to manually select the background/foreground layers to separate them — just select your image and instantly download the result image with the background removed! …it only works if there is at least one person in the image.

Here’s a before and after:

But wait, there’s more.

After you have removed the background, you can replace it with another photo.

Wow!
