AI photo filter maker Kaleido has come up with a powerful online tool called Remove.bg that erases the background from any image in five seconds or less, and gives you a transparent PNG of the person/people in the image. It works 100% automatically, you don’t have to mark the person or select the background and foreground layers manually. Just upload your image or enter its URL. Within five seconds you can download a transparent PNG cutout of the same.
The tool uses AI technology to detect foreground layers and separate them from the background. There are several additional algorithms to prevent color contamination and improve fine details.
There is however one drawback – the tool only accepts photos with faces, so there has to be at least one person in the image. The reason is that the AI has been trained to detect people as foreground and everything else as background. In the future, Kaleido may increase this functionality to other kinds of images as well.
