Removing the background on your profile pic is super easy if you have Photoshop, however if you don’t want to shell major bucks for the program, understandably, ClippingMagic and FreeBackgroundRemoval are two great alternatives. Links are in the description below.

To begin with ClippingMagic you first upload an image to the website. Once the image is uploaded simply use the green foreground selector to highlight the area you want to keep.

note that you do not need to highlight the whole area ClippingMagic’s algorithm will do that for you.

Next select the red background selector to remove the sections you want to be transparent and your done! ClippingMagic has some more advanced features if your interested in checking them out.

ClippingMagic is a relatively cheap service about $4 for 15 images so please support the developers.
