How to Remove the Background from Any Photo Online

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, Google Images, or Instagram. The Kapwing Background Remover lets you use both the Magic Wand and Erase tools. With the Magic Wand, just click anywhere on an area you want to remove from your photo and click “Remove Pixels.” To change how much is erased when you click, adjust the Sensitivity slider.

To erase parts of your picture manually, select the Erase tool and click & drag over the parts of your photo you want to remove. To change the size of your eraser, move the slider – you can even erase your background a few pixels at a time! When you’re done erasing your background, you can add anything to your picture, from a new image behind it to animated text and image filters. Share your creation directly from Kapwing to social media platforms like Instagram or Facebook, or download it straight to your device’s files.

Kapwing is great for various reasons. There's a lot of features for both images and video, all of which are extremely easy to use. I also like that the Kapwing staff responds quickly to user feedback and input.
