The cross-platform application quickly removes unwanted backgrounds from photos yet does not require any specific skills from a user. With a few clicks, a user can get rid of the background, smooth contours of the object, crop the image to a specified size and add a transparent shadow. The new version also features major performance improvements. Users rarely expect perfect results from one-click applications. This is so true for background removal software.
