If you’ve ever needed to quickly remove the background of an image you know it can be tedious, even with access to software like Photoshop.

Well, Remove.bg is a single-purpose website that uses AI to do the hard work for you. Just upload any image and the site will automatically identify any people in it, cut around the foreground, and let you download a PNG of your subject with a transparent background.

However it certainly isn’t faultless.

Like any magic wand tool, it gets a bit confused when faced with fuzzy boundaries between foreground and background.


But, it’s certainly robust enough to handle a wide range of pictures, and even though the site claims the tool only works with people, it can handle other subjects, as long as they’re clearly foregrounded.
