I know I can’t be the only one who gets frustrated when I have a photo of “someone” or a graphic with “something” in it, and all I want is that “someone” or “something” and not all of the background that’s also in the photo or image. It doesn’t make me very happy to have to send it off to one of my designers just to have them remove the background from an existing image. Especially when I’m in a hurry!
I know you can do it in Photoshop, but … I don’t do Photoshop. You can also do it in Word … but I understand it’s a real pain in the you know what.
So, imagine my delight (yes, I know I use this phrase quite often – but technology often delights me!) when I found out about Clipping Magic! Clipping Magic is a sweet little online tool that makes removing backgrounds easy peasy. You can quickly and easily remove backgrounds, and make them transparent with just a few clicks. If you subscribe to the Standard or Pro service, there is even a bulk clipping option for when you have several images you need to work with at once. I was a little skeptical about just how easy the process was at first, but after trying it, can attest to the fact that it IS a very painless process.[clickToTweet tweet=”Quit fussing and fighting to remove backgrounds from images.

There are some great tutorials on the website so if you have any problems or need to know how to do something, they have you covered.
