If you have photographed something and you want to upload it online to sell it, it is probably best to remove the background of the image. Typically, people already have this in mind and take the picture of the object against a white background or a plain colored background. But if you have forgotten to do this and already have a digital image, its background can be removed easily, all thanks to a web app called ClippingMagic.
ClippingMagic is a free to use web service that helps its users remove the background of images. Although signing up for an account is not a requirement on the site, doing so results in better connectivity with the site and better app performance. You start by uploading the image that includes the object and background. Your next task is to highlight the object’s areas using a green highlighter. You also highlight the object’s background using a pink highlighter.
A preview of what the final image is going to be like is displayed in the right pane while you work on the image in the left pane of the interface. You will find that as you work on the image, the areas you select as the background are quickly replaced by an empty background.
When you are done making the markings and when you are satisfied by the preview, you can download the image in the PNG file format.
