In photography, photo editing and graphics design, a background is part of the image that is out of focus. A background is also part of the image that does not contain the required details of the image/photo. A background can also be described as part of the image/photo that is transparent or translucent in most cases.
Background removal is therefore the photo editing or image manipulation process of isolating the subject in a given photo from its background. It can also be viewed as the process making the main subject of the photo stand out alone from the rest of the parts of the same image/photo.
Background removal services are required when we want to shift our focus to only the subject of the photo, or use the subject alone in other subsequent photo editing or graphic design activities which may include making of composites for advertisement, making flyers ,making banners or covers for various documents such as eBooks and newsletters and also independently it can be used to make photos more appealing by getting rid of distractions captured intentionally or those that were unavoidable during the photo shoot.
However, it is not a complete process in itself and requires other photo editing procedures to compliment it and make the target subject appealing.
As seen, image background can be simple or complex depending on the scoop of the photo shooting process and environment. The most common image backgrounds to cut out are portraits; those with a clear focus and a blurred background. An example of complex backgrounds to cut out is photos of nature with even focus, where the target subject has no unique distinction from the other parts of the image.
Image background removal can either be complex or just simple. Different methodologies are used to cut out background from photos and Adobe Photoshop.
The different categories of background removal or deep etching service are as follows
This category involves removing background from objects with solid shapes such as squares, rectangles and circles. The objects have usually less or equal to 6 anchor points. The objects should not contain any holes or areas of deep penetration.
This category involves the deep etching of objects with a simple background with may include a solid color. The backgrounds are very easy to scrap off. The anchor points are relatively few and the path is not too curvy, hence making it a bit easier to complete the process. Examples are shoes and apparel photos.
This category is not straight forward. The background cannot be removed such directly, but is also not too complex. The objects contain fairly many holes and anchor points. The transparency is also mid-level and can be easily differentiated from the other parts of the image. An example of this category is photos of groups of objects such as watches.
This involves objects with embedded transparency. The selection around the subjects contains multiple paths and complex edges hence require a deeper skill. Examples include photos of furniture and jewelry.
This category requires advanced cut out background skills. It involves more complex clipping path service to cut out the background; the subject may be blended with the background. An example includes head shots with spread out hairs.
This special category involves removing unwanted parts of the subject to make it standout. It is common with outfits and is also called invisible mannequin.
