Erasing the background of an image can make all sorts of new projects possible. Logos, stickers, overlays, emotes, green screen memes, digital picture frames, stickers, and photoshop-style images all require that you make part of your photo transparent before making it a PNG file or replacing the background with something else. Instead of erasing images pixel by pixel, you'll save time with our automatic image background removing tool.
Upload the image you want to erase the background from.
With the photo selected, click the “Erase” button in the edit menu. The background will automatically get removed, leaving a transparent background.
You can add a new background to your image or make other adjustments, then click the “Export” button to download your new image with a transparent background.
Removing an image background might sound complicated, but it's easy with this online background removal tool from Kapwing. Using the background eraser, creators can remove any unwanted parts of an image automatically or manually.
Using your computer, phone, or tablet, click Upload to find an image you have saved already, or paste a link to any image location on the web like Instagram, Google Drive, or Google Images. The Kapwing Background Remover allows you to remove backgrounds automatically or using the eraser to delete specific parts. After clicking Erase, your image background will be removed automatically. To erase parts of your picture manually, select the Erase tool and click & drag over the parts of your photo you want to remove. Alternatively, use the Restore button to recover parts of the photo that were erased. Change the eraser size using the slider.
When you're done erasing your background, you can add a new background to your picture by adding a different image and sending it backward, or making edits like adding animated text and image filters. You can also select the transparent background option to create a PNG. Once you're done, hit Export to process the finished file, then share your creation directly from Kapwing to social media platforms like Instagram or Facebook, or download it straight to your device.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
