PhotoScissors 8 is an innovative application that serves to erase backgrounds from digital images, preserving only the objects that are of interest to you. Targeting still images exclusively, this program stands out through ease of use and accessibility, to the benefit of all audiences.
PhotoScissors saves the day when you quickly need to cut out a person or object to paste into another picture, or to remove the background from a photo. You don’t need any specific skills or professional software for a perfect image clip. Just upload the image and our algorithm will automatically remove the background using deep neural networks.
Quickly Prepare Product Photos for Online Shops
Cutting out the background from photos is a popular photo editing procedure. There are literally dozens of possible uses for PhotoScissors: uploading product images to eBay or Amazon, preparing photos for job seeking or dating websites, replacing a boring background with a more picturesque one or a solid color, creating photo jokes and collages, retouching vacation photos for fun or to make a better impression, and many more.
Remove Background Around Hair
PhotoScissors easily handles complex semi-transparent objects like hair, allowing you to get rid of the background in these pictures as easily as in any other scene. Whereas in other tools hair must literally be dealt with pixel by pixel, PhotoScissors saves you hours, since the Hair tool also effectively manages transparent objects.
PhotoScissors vs chroma key
One of the most popular graphic extraction technologies is chroma key, which can be used with both still and moving pictures and is usually incorporated by plugins that run on hosts such as Photoshop. However, these are costly solutions that require advanced editing skills, therefore they are less accessible to home users.
In contrast with chroma key editors, PhotoScissors is a simpler approach that costs less and is easier to use. Another advantage is that the program can process images with any type of background, as opposed to the unicolor design that is required in chroma key. In terms of results though, PhotoScissors’s power is somewhat limited, but satisfactory, overall.
A brief summary of the feature set
PhotoScissors benefits from a decent set of functions, which are neatly organized inside its intuitive and user-friendly interface. Users benefit from a before / after experience, where the original photo is aligned with the result so that differences are made more obvious.
The removal of the objects is done in accordance with your needs, through two main brushes that enable you to mark what should be removed (background) and what should stay (foreground). It’s enough to draw a few lines over the background that you want gone and to highlight the object to be kept in order to extract it from the original image.
Expectations for the future
PhotoScissors does a good job at removing backgrounds and most of the times, the extraction operation is flawless. However, we would like to see a feature that allows users to add a new background where the newly extracted object can be placed freely.
