Clipping Magic – remove backgrounds from images

Clipping Magic is a free online tool which helps you to easily remove background from images. If you’re struggling with the lasso tool on Adobe Photoshop, you should definitely try this to ease your life.  Clipping Magic is a new webapp that does it for you in seconds.  All you have to do is paint the foreground object one color, the background object another, and the app does the work for you.

To start, browse to Clipping Magic and choose an image file that you want to work on or just drag and drop a photo onto the site.

You will now see two copies of your image: the one on the left is the “Original+Mask ” image and another is the “Result”  image.

You’ll get a green box you can use to paint the foreground image, or the area of the photo you want to select. Click the red box to paint the background—or the part of the photo you want removed. You work with a version of the photo on the left, and you can see a live preview of the changes on the right, so you can always backtrack, or zoom in for a finer touch if you want.

Clipping Magic  doesn’t have brush size control. The default brush size is rather large and you might have problems which involve highlighting areas you don’t want highlighted. To compensate, try zooming in first before highlighting with the brush. The brush is relatively smaller in this zoomed mode.
