Remove The Background From Your Image With Remove.bg

If you’re a new VA starting out or, like me, creating a lot of Facebook Ad graphics or if you’re trying to learn how to do banners and social media graphics, this is such a powerful tool. It lets you pull that background out of any image, whole. But unless you know Adobe Photoshop or something like that, it’s really hard to get that background out. Like, completely gone.

So, I asked, am I going to learn how to use Adobe, am I going to pay someone to do it or is there some tool out there that I can use that’s going to get rid of that background for me? And the answer was, there is a free tool. It’s so great and I’m going to show you how you can pull those backgrounds out of your images for free.

So let’s head on over right now and check out remove.bg

Steps To Remove The Background

  • Go to www.remove.bg. There’s no “.com” or anything. I always get asked that. It’s just remove.bg
  • When you get there, click select photo, you’re going to find whatever photo you want to use, upload it and it shows you the before and after.
  • So, now you can adjust it even more. Go to edit to get your eraser. You can pick your size and clean up your photo more, until you’re happy with it.
  • Don’t worry if you mess up and erase too close, you can use the restore button or undo.
  • Last, you hit save and there’s your image with no background.

So, it’s super, super easy. One thing I will share with you is if you don’t have a person, an animal or something that’s living, it’s not going to remove the background. So you need a person, a dog, something that’s the main focal point and then it will remove the background. But, a totally free tool. So amazing. I use this one for all my thumbnails.

So, that is remove.bg. Super easy to use and it’s free. It does not get much better than that! Now, the question of the day is, let me know in the comments, how are you going to use this? Is it for social media graphics, Ebook covers, YouTube cover art? How do you plan on using your images and why are you removing those backgrounds?
