Good photos are essential to everything you'll want to do, whether that's showcasing what your business can do, branding for a client or simply preserving your family and friends in the best light. Sometimes, however, mistakes happen or clutter in a photo's background can deflect attention away from what you really want viewers to see. This is when you need a background remover.

Unlike using a clipping path to remove an image from a background, which uses a vector to highlight and cut an image from its scene, a background remover completely deletes the background from a highlighted object. For example, an app such as VistaCreate uses an algorithm to analyse a photo and judge the primary and secondary objects in the image, it will then remove the background.
