Would you like to completely remove the background from an image and leave it transparent so that whatever background it is placed on shows through? Transparent images are fairly common nowadays and are often used in design or for logos, websites, and other purposes.
However if you want to make an image background transparent, you need to first select it precisely and then delete it – which can be tricky and if you’ve tried it in the past you may not have been happy with the result. For an easier way to get the job done however, you should give Movavi Photo Editor a try. I enjoy editing images to improve them or creatively produce various types of looks. I use Movavi Photo Editor for most of my editing needs due to how easy it is to use.
How to Remove an Image Background Using Movavi Photo Editor
In order to use Movavi Photo Editor as a transparent background maker, you should launch it then click on the ‘Browse for Images’ button and select the image that you want to edit. If you prefer you can drag and drop the file into the working area as indicated, which may be more convenient.
After the image has been loaded into Movavi Photo Editor, click on the ‘Change Background’ tab in the upper part of the interface. In the sidebar you can then select the ‘Foreground Brush’ and use it to mark the subject and foreground area that you want to keep, then select the ‘Background Brush’ to mark the background areas that you want to remove.
Don’t worry if the selection isn’t precise, as Movavi Photo Editor will let you tidy it up when you click on the ‘Next Step’ button by using the ‘Foreground Mask’ brush and ‘Background Mask’ brush to refine your selection.
