Background Burner: Free Service to Remove the Background from Images

Upload an image to Background Burner, let it automatically detect and remove whatever is in the background, and then save the new image. If necessary, you can touch things up – you can help Background Burner more efficiently remove background images.

Say you want to sell an item online – a purse for example. You have a nice picture of the purse, but you don’t want the background to distract potential customers. So you decide to remove all background images. How do you do that? Well, you could use the PhotoScissors application – but it is only free to try, and will not let you save the edited image. A nice and free alternative is to use the Background Burner online service.

Visit the Background Burner webpage and you will see a big “Try it” section that invites you to drag and drop an image or choose an image file to be edited.

Select an image and it will be uploaded to Background Burner. While the image is processed, an animation of a fire breathing dragon is displayed onscreen. On a personal note, I have to say that the animation reminds me of the Green Dragon seventh-level creature from the Heroes of Might and Magic 3 turn-based strategy game.

After Background Burner is done processing the image, it will present several options. The first, in this case, is almost perfect – with just a bit of touchup, the entire background will be removed.

When you’re done, when the entire background has been removed you can save the image as JPG (white background) or PGN (transparent background).

Perhaps you want to remove the background and replace it with something else. Background Burner can do that as well. You can remove the original background and replace it with a nice texture for example.
