Alright. So in this video, I’m going to show you how to remove the background from a video or photo. Show you three different ways to remove the backgrounds from a photo so that you can make a nice YouTube thumbnail that doesn’t have all of this in the background because we all know it looks cooler when you take out the background and do something like this. All right, so we’re going to remove the backgrounds from an image that I already have. So let’s get to it.
Here’s three ways to do it. So first is a tool called Remove PG or Remove Pg.com Remove BG. So all we have to do is upload an image and there’s the original image and there’s the roof background, so we can’t edit it here. But it’s a quick like that. Or you could restore it back like that.
So that’s probably the fastest you can download the that downside to this tool is that it does require a credit requires paid account to download an HD version of this image, but it does a quick job of removing the backgrounds. It’s easy to throw this in Canva. Second is PhotoScissors. I like PhotoScissors. It’s got a nice editor that kind of comes up really quickly here.
So you’ll see it shows there’s my hand missing. So if we needed to add my hand back in, it shows really easily this green part to say, hey, look, that’s my hand there. Or maybe we don’t want our hands show the eraser up here and just take those hands off. So it’s got a really easy to use tool like this and get rid of curtain here. There you go.
This is Photoshoot.com. This is one. If I want to get something a little more precise, I’ll use Photos versus Remove PG. Thirdly, if you have a paid Canva account, you can also add an image into Canva and they have a Remove Backgrounds feature in Canva as well, which is under Edit Image and Background Remover. Again, you do need a Pro account on Canva to use this feature.
So we can do up to 500 remove backgrounds per day with this tool. So that looks nice, especially if you use Canva to make your thumbnails pretty easy to then work from this. So that looks great. Lastly, if you have a video and you want to capture screenshots from it, image this tool Disclaimer. But I think it’s pretty cool.
So this allows you to actually upload a video and it’ll take a screenshot every few seconds. You can set it different settings here. So the first one here, I have it set to 4 seconds. You can do 2 seconds or have it take a screenshot every 10 seconds and it’s going to look for smiles in the video. It’s going to look frame by frame and say, hey, is that person smiling?
Because maybe that’s a screen capture that we might want to use so you can see, okay, we’ve got a 98.61% smile confidence that looks accurate. Download the image and then you can also just click remove background from here directly and then you’ll be able to download the version without the background. So that’s a neat little tool you can adjust and see different emotions. So if I wanted to see just happy high emotions or maybe calm here, these are still coming in so they’re still getting processed but looks pretty calm. Looks pretty chill.
Looks pretty chill. Okay. See surprise screenshot. That looks surprised. Okay, so that’s good.
That’s the one I would probably use maybe for a thumbnails so we can just click remove backgrounds and that’ll download the image there without the backgrounds to your computer. So I hope this ways useful for you so three ways you can do it with a photo and then this tool you can actually just upload a video and get screenshots and kind of get an automated process for remove the backgrounds. All right. Thanks for checking along and good luck with your channels and videos and I’ll.
