Photoshop Alternatives to Removing Backgrounds from Profile Pics

Here I will be showing you some cheap and free tools that can remove the background from your profile pics to make sure they look great on your Plugs for any links you want to share on social media.

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.

Sidenote there is a free way to get the images if you’re a bit strapped for cash so Check out our friend geniusknight in the description below

An alternative and always Free tool is FreeBackgroundRemoval. It’s much easier than ClippingMagic however not as robust and works best if you have a solid background color. All you do is simply upload the file and let FreeBackgroundRemoval works its magic. Then just save and your done, yeah it’s that easy!
