Remove and replace the background of videos and images with ease
With Kapwing's smart background removal tool, you can isolate people from the background of a video or image, without a green screen. All it takes is a few clicks. Open Kapwing and upload your own media. With your layer selected, click the "Effects” tab and select the "Remove Background" option. Our AI will automatically remove the background!
Upload a video or image from your device, or use a link from YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, etc.
Click the “Remove Background” button in the Effects tab and give it a few seconds to load and start applying the neural network. When it's done, you will see a preview of which areas will be removed.
Upload or search for a new background using the Upload or Images buttons in the upper toolbar. When everything looks just right, hit the Export button and give Kapwing some time to process your project. Once it's done, you can download your finished video or share it directly on social media!
Using your computer, phone, or tablet, click “Upload” to find a video or image you have saved already, or paste a link to any media from the web like Instagram, Google Drive, Google Images, or Instagram. The Remove Background tool on Kapwing lets you simply click a button and all the work is done by AI.
The tool will take a few seconds to remove the background, but once the background has been removed, you will see the main foreground of your video in real time. You can then add an image or a different video background to go with your original video/image. You can also take the video or image with background removed and add it as an overlay on top of another video.
Kapwing's online video editor can also be used to time the videos out together so that a video with the background removed can be used with another video. You can trim the videos easily and add additional things like text and images. We hope you enjoy this free tool from Kapwing!
