Remove Image Background

Do you need to remove the background from an image or photo, but don't have the time or software?  There is a website I recommend where you drag your image on the webpage, and your background is removed immediately! The website is Remove.BG. It is free to use and easy to use.

Examples of when to remove background from image

In the video, I used the Remove Background website twice:

  • I removed the white background in my electronic signature. It looks great when I insert my Signature in a Word document with a white background, but any other background looks awful. A screenshot is below.
  • I removed the background from a headshot photo of myself.

Two screenshots below. One showing my signature without the background removed in a Word document with a gray background, and one with my signature with the background removed.
