Photo Background Remover helps to clear digital shots from unwanted background in batch. Manual removal is performed with the aim of two markers: a red marker is used to define the background area that will be removed, while green marker selects the area that will stay untouched. Automatic background removal doesn’t require any manual adjustments, the program will clear an image by itself. The program also features watermark protection.

Very pleasantly surprised at how great this worked, with just one pass. Wish I had a way to upload a before and after. It had a very busy background with colors that blended into the subject. I have used many of these background removers and this one was very, very successful.

like Ebay, I pretty much depend on 'feedback' as to whether I want to take advantage of the daily offer
and so far what I hear I will stick with the free version of 'Inpaint' as from what I can determine does about
the same...still, thanks GOTD many offerings have been a nice addition for me at different times

SoftOrbits has some good software. I believe they have fixed the license deactivation issue's that people have mentioned happening in the past.

One thing I believe that SoftOrbits photo software's are missing badly is they do not have .8bf where you can use them in Photoshop and other photo editors. Paint.net which is what I use can use .8bf plugins if you add the free plugin PSFilerPDN to it.

You can buy "SoftOrbits Background Remover" today for only $15 ! BUT I can not find any
info regarding life of license. Is it going to disappear at some point like their giveaway offers?

I tried this program a while back. I deleted it when the license went poof.

I tried this and was really disappointed. Just way too much work to get the end results that you want. It went "poof" from my machine. A few months ago they had this one https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/photoscissors-4-0/ and it works REALLY well. If something happens and I happen to lose this I will buy it outright for sure!!!

In my opinion Photo Scissors is easier to use and you get better results.

Connie, I have PhotoScissors and love this program. I bought it and money well spent for my needs :-)

Pat,
Yep.....PhotoSissors does a better job AND it is a cheaper program!!! Kind of amazes me at the percentage of "Likes" that this program got.

But that is what this site is all about. Different folks like different things so there is something for everyone from time to time.

You can get better results of removing background by a simple photo editor than this one.
First this software does not allow pixel by pixel outline,
Second, the shadows from the background falling on the part you want to keep can not be removed,
Third, the part of the background always leave traces on the edges and parts you want to keep can overlap with the parts you are removing.
Better results with any photo editor can be done this way:
Enlarge the part you want to extract, outline it with white marker and then copy it from the image and paste it in a new picture with no background, enlarge the image again and remove the residue from the edges.
This can give you 100 times better results and the extracted part becomes independent from the previous picture and can be inserted in any kind of background you want or leave it as is.

Photo Background Remover is a simple, but practical tool for anyone in possession of large multimedia libraries. It allows removal of selected background elements while retaining certain foreground objects. As a minus, users should tread carefully in 'manual edit' mode, as some tasks can cause the program to crash.

I downloaded this program last time and I have used it to my satisfaction. This is a beginners software that works well for basics and occasional use to trim something out but it is not aimed at advanced/ professional users who will no doubt use a better and much more expensive software.
The sceret of successful use seems to be to considerably enlarge the picture for the changes and then it looks acceptable when returned to normal size. If the program is used on a normal size picture the results can look quite ragged.
Perhaps I am lucky in that I have never had a problem with Soft Orbit programs ( finger crossed!)
They are a Russian company but then so are Kaspersky who are one of the market leaders in security software.
I am not a supported of Russia in any political sense. Their actions on the world stage are deplorable and I understand if some people refuse to use their products because of this.

Russia has some very good programmers who produce good software. They also seem to have some programmers who use their skills for negative reasons but then so do some other nations as evidenced by the recent Facebook scandal.
There is a capacity for any software to include harmful elements which means that there is a risk using ANY software. To be honest I do not know who to trust so my policy is to be as careful as I can in the source, software, installation and permissions.

Peter: Worrying about a software publisher's CoO (Country of Origin) isn't worth it. Many publishers can, and do, obfuscate details of their website domains and cite office locations in an entirely different country. Some software publishers don't even exist: they're the trading fronts of a single producer offering re-badged products. Others charge tax on goods bought even though they pocket that tax. The list goes on . . .

Your fears in regard to Russia are a latter-day reflection of those about China, when it was (allegedly) the Evil Empire. A degree of paranoia also existed about former Soviet bloc countries as well as India.

Yet as you rightly say, there are some superb Russian developers. Just as there are some superb Chinese developers. Ditto former Soviet bloc and India. Unless it's a verifiable fact that any software I'm about to try comes from North Korea, then I'll just exercise routine prudence and not bother about CoO.

As to today's offer: you're correct about the need -- always -- to enlarge images when doing this kind of work. It's also wise to check out different developers (regardless of origin) because a user's success greatly depends on how clever a developer's algorithm might be. Despite the proliferation of pixel-shifting / seam-carving software out there, not all programs offer the same performance because not all developers have the same ability.

Peter, I am not sure these people are in agreement with their government, so we can't really judge. You never know. Also, I doubt that any Russian would speak against the government without repercussions. I say this because I am highly embarrassed by the actions and demeanor of our own commander in chief. Luckily, I can't be put into prison for expressing that. At least, not yet.

Can't get license - click on link to verify email address, and get " www.softorbits.com is currently unable to handle this request. - HTTP ERROR 500"

Tried reloading - still no dice = anyone else getting this?

I find "Inpaint" to be pretty useful - just for amateur photo stuff

I have tried dozens of these photo 'background remover' programs....and I have to say NONE of them actually worked......including this one. Basically you just end up with a 'mess'. Uninstalled.

John, would be interesting so see one of your test images.

John, These programs are rubbish. I have tried each and every one as they come along and they are all the same. No improvements over the years, just the occasional name change. Hopeless!

John, I agree that none are perfect. Removing backgrounds is tedious work, especially if you are doing it for print, or are paid well for that job. Photoshop isn't even that good, and it really takes a lot of steps, unless you use the pen tool, which is the best way to remove backgrounds. But I did find this product worked beautifully on my first subject. But if you really want professional results, you have to master that frustrating pen tool.

I’ve had some experience with a few automated background removers. They only work well on simple backgrounds, while on anything more realistic, you need a lot of manual intervention afterwards. And if you’re going to intervene manually anyway, you’d be better off with a non-trivial image editor, even a free one like the paint.net already mentioned.

Consequent to the above, I’ve had all the automated background removers I’ve tried uninstalled.

Almost every time this program is given here i want to purchase it but each time i change my mind after trying it .The program does a not too bad job on removing most of the background but the edges you need to remove manually using another program.I install the program without problems and got a key also without much ado and it was quick too but even after restarting the computer the program still said Promo in the bottom right in red I then ran a test with not bad result but i also notice a very small logo of what looks like a camera in the picture that was not in the original and is distorted on enlargement , the normal watermark that they place on the save file with unregistered programs was not there.I am very sorry to say i am finding it very difficult to trust softorbits programs , with their discount the price becomes reasonable but I am honestly worried about this program maker with my computer even when some of their programs are pretty good and worth buying .I need to know that their programs are clean without backdoors and is not taking my info back home .

installed, kind of tedious procedure to register, but not to bad.
software itself
need to select what to remove,
then click the button to remove, and it just removes a all kinds of things,
the selection tool is not so accurate,
I will stick with my old version of photoshop
