Photos with transparent backgrounds make the image truly stand out. Transparent photos will improve your creative output whether you’re making memes, creating branded graphics or adding photos to a product page. Typically, making transparent photos means you’re a wizard at design.

However, you need a transparent photo now and don’t have time to master these skills. Luckily, Kapwing knows your pain. That’s why Kapwing created a simple tool to remove the background, totally free. You won’t have any trouble making a transparent photo because it only takes a few clicks. Here’s how:

  1. Upload your photo
  2. Erase the background
  3. Download your transparent photo

1. Upload your photo

First, open Kapwing’s ‘Remove Background From Image’ tool and upload your photo. You can click to upload or drag and drop your file.

If your photo is zoomed in too much, click the percentage in the top right corner and choose a lower number. On the other hand, choose a higher number to zoom in.

2. Erase the background

Now, erase the background by choosing your preferred tool. The ‘Erase’ tool gives you control over which pixels you delete. The ‘Magic Wand’ tool selects areas that are similar in color and shade. Below, you can see how the eraser works.

Also, the eraser allows you to change the eraser size to delete large areas or specific pixels. The magic wand allows you to adjust the sensitivity of the area selected. The further left, the larger the selected area will be.

Clean up the edges by using the zoom tool in the top right and a small eraser size.

3. Download your transparent photo

When you’re done, click done and hit ‘Publish’ in the top right. If needed, use the rotate tools on the center right side to make adjustments. Finally, wait for your transparent photo to process and download the finished product.
