Editing images in Windows 10 is a very simple task due to the large amount of free photo editing software available. However, if you want to edit basic images, you don’t need to use a native program, you just need to find a free online photo editing tool and do it through your web browser.
I recently came across an online tool known as Remove the background image and, as the name suggests, it’s about removing backgrounds from your images. Apparently, you’re not required to be a professional; simply upload the photo and let the tool do its magic.

I did an image removal test and I got pretty good results. With that in mind, let’s talk about good and evil, shall we?
How does it work?
Well, from what we can tell, it won’t remove the background from your photos unless it’s a photo of a person. If it is just an object, you will receive the following error message:
«No people were found: at this time remove.bg only works for photos with at least one person in them. Sorry, please select a suitable image. »
That’s exactly what I did and you know what? It turned out perfect.
How to remove the background
Just go to the remove.bg website and there you will see a big green button that says Select a photo . Alternatively, you can choose to copy the URL of the image and paste it in the «enter» section.
After that, the tool will automatically remove the background from the photo like a boss and everything is done in a few seconds and without a single click.
When you’re done, you’ll see the original image and the edited image side by side. The one edited without its background will have a green download button under it, if you are interested.
Other changes to the image
If you look closely at both photos, you’ll see that the edited version is darker in places. If this little thing could be a problem for you, you might want to use your native Windows 10 software to manually remove the background from your images. I tested several images and they all show the same problem.
The good news, though, is that it still looks almost true to the original, and that’s what you should be able to live with.
