Instant Background Eraser to Remove Photo Backgrounds

October 30, 2020 | 0 min read


How many times have you found yourself in a spot where you absolutely loved how you or your subject looked in a picture; however, something still seemed to be wrong about it as a whole? In most cases than not, that ‘something wrong’ is the image background.  An ill-looking background can potentially drop down the appeal of a picture. Glorify’s background eraser tool solves this problem for you under minutes!

It actually is not even only about an ugly, ill-looking backdrop. There could be so many reasons to remove the background of a photo; to get rid of the unnecessary clutter, to cut out an object for use against another layered design, to find a more-suitable background that highlights your product, etc.
Background removal or editing comes in handy, especially for YouTubers and Instagram thumbnails.

With our Background eraser tool, all you need to do is, upload (or drag and drop) your image and our tool automatically identifies the object, deleting the entire background through auto-clip. Or for those who are a tad bit more particular, you can also do it manually by choosing the scalpel mode. It really is that simple and quick!

How to erase a background picture? You know now!

Once the background of your image is removed, you will be able to see a white and grey checkered background underneath your image. You can then create any background for your image; the image can be downloaded in the PNG format which further preserves the transparency, opening up so many possibilities for you.

Here are some quick tips on what all you can do with a no-background image after using Glorify’s background eraser

Let’s say, for example, you are creating an Amazon product promo image. Just click on the Amazon product promo image template, and choose “new from scratch” in the template options.

Just upload your background-less product image, and now add any background from the “Background” option in the left panel. From solid colors to patterned backgrounds Glorify does all of it for you! To spice things up a little more, once done, you can also add text and elements like illustrations, buttons, shapes, icons and so much more by clicking on “text” or “elements” respectively in the left panel.

Quick Tips on getting the best, ideal results with the Glorify Background Eraser Tool-

1. The best images for background removal are those that have a definite object in the foreground. If you are using the tool for your product images, always choose images that have your product highlight in the spotlight. You can also advise your photographer to keep the product closer to the camera in order to achieve a solid foreground.

2. Use images that have a definite contrast between the foreground and the background image. Also once you have removed the background, always remember, plain background work best for product images than busy background. Also why Amazon has a ‘white background’ image policy for sellers!

Another thing to keep in mind is that the images wherein the subject is cut off at the edge of the photo’s frame will look the best instead of an image that has the subject cut off in the middle of the frame. If not, the removed background could end up looking even worse than the original background.

FAQs: Glorify Background Eraser Tool

1) Is Glorify’s background eraser free?

Though we are not able to offer the tool for free forever, you can use the service for free during the trial period. During the 14 period trial period, you can use the tool for a maximum of 10 uses. At the end of the trial period, you would be asked to pick from a plan of your preference – Glorify Pro or Glorify Business and everything, from templates to other epic design tools, everything is free thereon!

2) Does removing background ruin picture quality?

Editing or removing the background when using a background eraser does change the image to specific other pixels. If your image is already a high-quality image, editing might not affect your picture too much, even though it will reduce the accuracy. However, as a general rule, the less editing involved in a picture, the better.

3)Which is better quality JPEG or PNG?

While both the formats are good in their own sense, PNG is a better choice when it comes to drawings, text, and iconic graphics at a small file size. JPG format, on the other hand, is a lossy compressed file format. If you are using the background eraser tool, downloading your background-less images in the PNG format helps you preserve the picture quality.
