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.

Good for basic background removal but you can't remove the finer detail such as the background mixed with a persons hair.
I made a mistake and used the green bush on the background, then I found that I could not remove my green line on the background.
I needed to select the red brush several times such a changing the brush size.
The smallest brush can't be seen.
Apart from that it's a easy to use program that gives good results.

I've found PhotoScissors, a couple of different versions of which have been offered here, works well, at least for the kinds of things I use it for. It has a few annoyances, but they're fairly minor, and I use it often.

I'll be honest I was somewhat excited at first to try this as I do edit a lot of images. After installing it and everything I tried it on several images and wasn't please with it's results really at all. The description makes it sound as if the program will detect the background by itself and remove it automatically which is not the case. You need to outline what you want to keep in the photo with green than outline what you want in red. Not time consuming but it's not very effective almost any program that has a magic eraser will out preform this program with cleaner results as the program loves to soften the outline and not give a clean boarder.

Not bad but I just don't see a purpose for it myself compared to many others. If you are looking for something like this give "Photo POS Pro 3" a shot (yes horrible name lol). It is free with a few minor limitations mainly resolution but offers more and is far more automated with background removal.

Ya know, I kinda like this site ,No-one has to love everything they post for FREE
and the comments are made for improvements or positive remarks, I think its unkind for some people to leave such negative comments instead of thanking GOTD for giving you the opportunity to try the programs, and then comment on the improvements that can be made or other programs you prefer to use over this one. Please be kind, I have got some wonderful software here. Please be kind, Id like to continue coming here. thanks again.
God Bless
Rena

Yet again....actually only 5 comments....mostly negative, yet the product has a 81% positive rating ??
Why not just abandon the rating system altogether as it serves no useful purpose ?

John

ps. I've tried these so-called background remover programs in the past...none have impressed me.
So I'll pass on this offer.

John, here's the problem. You didn't try THIS program, so you have nothing to say about it. Anything else you tried is irrelevant.

Reply   |   Comment by Charles Lewis  –  12 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

John,
No need to abandon, just learn to ignore it. Sometimes when you press it jumps two, three or even four points! Anyway a combined system is bad, there should be positive points and negative ones, not a combination where nought can mean that both sides or equal or that nobody is interested.

Reply   |   Comment by Zen  –  11 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Zen , the fact that it jumps several points when you click only means that votes by others since you last refreshed your page are taken into account.This happens on all sites where there is an upvote/downvote system. But yes, this recurrent discrepancy between comments and votes whenever SoftOrbits is present here is suspect, to say the least.

Reply   |   Comment by ouialaraison  –  11 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

John, it is a shame that GAOTD allows itself to be used by this Russian company. The positive rating of all it's offerings on here are obviously boosted by SoftOrbits itself or people and bots acting on behalf of it. Each time it has a giveaway here the positive rating is higher than that of any other giveaway from any other developer. This may be the way Russia does things and thinks it is oh-so clever, but it shouldnt be accepted by the rest of us, which is why I would never touch a SoftOrbits software at all.

Zen ,

Your comment: " Sometimes when you press it jumps two, three or even four points!"

The reason for the jump more than 1 is due to others having pressed the same button since your page was last refreshed. During peak viewing times, i have refreshed the page and seen the counter skyrocket over and over. Sometimes it doesn't jump at all after a click; that happens when someone clicks for a positive increase but someone else has clicked for a negative decrease. When the page refreshes the displayed count, it has to take into consideration all of the accumulated clicks. That is just how these things work from a tabulating standpoint; nothing odd about that part of it.

There is a peak time when the majority of the wold will be viewing the page, and likewise, a low period that trails off after a day or so. During the slower times, you will generally see a single digit change. During peak times, I have seen it jump more than 5 or 6. Those ones end up having huge counts, indicating a very much loved program or a very hated one.

Since people can vote from all over the world, there really isn't much that GOTD can do to control the counts, so they could be from supporters of the program or regular citizens. Just like a company could have several of their supporters vote, likewise, so could any other individual get several others to vote in one direction of the other.

Overall, and for the majority of time, it is probably not too far off. The only thing you can do is just take it with a grain of salt (less stress that way).

Barbara K,
I honestly don't care which country the (any) software originates from as long as I consider it to be useful to me. You seem more concerned that SoftOrbits is a 'Russian' company rather than the quality of their software. I have software on my computer from various countries. For example I use AIMP player (Russian) as my default music player (which I highly recommend by the way), and I use FastCopy (Japanese) for moving files from one drive to another.
As for SoftOrbits' software, I personally have not found any of their programs to be of any use to me.
Oh dear, I must have boosted SoftOrbits rating again. Damn!

Hi John,

Have you seen or used the following programs?

http://www.imageskill.com/backgroundremover/backgroundremover.html

ImageSkill Background Remover is a Photoshop plugin and it's the one I use the most. So easy to use and does an awesome job out of all these background removers that I have used.

Another one you might want to look at and consider is:

https://www.vertustech.com/

I brought FluidMask a while back with a 80% discount through the PC World shop newsletter that I have subscribed to.

I think you'll also find that this too is one of the best background removers on the market. It comes as standalone program as well as a Photoshop plugin. Watch the video on the front page to see how easy it is to use and the results are amazing.

Anyway check them out as I am sure both these programs will impress you.

Zen , the counter jumps is fine. It can be that in the time between you loading the page and you giving a voting other users did their voting and so you get the current state of votings displayed, which may be different to what you saw at first.

Don't waste your time using Background Remover. In the past, I downloaded Background Remover and was not impressed with the results. It removed some of the objects and left in it's place blurry areas. Along with, smudged pixels and small parts of the removed item were placed on other areas of the remaining image.The red and green markers are a joke. It never does get it right. Tried to touch up the Background Remover image with Photoshop till I ask myself, why am I doing this? I then deleted it!

VTC, e.g. a graphics editor like Affinity Photo, which has several means of removing unwanted objects from an image!

Affinity family (Photo, Designer, Publisher) is the best editors, I using on every day. With this can remove background too.

Had this before and it was rubbish. Tried this version and it was still rubbish. It just cannot distinguish between what has to be taken out and what has to be left. Edges are fuzzy, ragged, and still contains bits of background. The radius cannot be set by by direct numeric entry and the slider cannot be set precisely - just childish programming. So glad I did not spend any money of this. It has now been binned.

MSpaint can also remove all sorts of unnecessary items from a photo and that costs nothing!

Johan Cabs, The program has been offered here for a half hour when I saw you comment. So I guess that you had time to test it and compare with MSPaint in that amount of time? I think not. But thanks for the "helpful" comment all the same.

Harry, May I point out that some programs have already been given away more than once and are in circulation every year. Some with a different figure behind the comma. In other words; you know very little how that goes with GOTD.
