Please note:
1. Include every pixel that you want to retain in the rectangle box.
2. Make a rectangle selection as small as the cutout shape to get a more accurate result.

Please note:
1. You do not have to carefully select the areas, just make sure that the green marker touches any colors that you want to keep.
2. Make sure you stay within the lines of the object you want to cut out.



Step 5. Use the red tool to mark part of the background.

2. Do not mark red on the foreground.



Step 6. Use Fine-tuning tool to refine edges and cut out semi-transparent portions.

Tips.
1. Fine-tuning is used to cut out semi-transparent objects like weeding dresses, glasses, gauze... It will automatically separate foreground from background.
2. Use Eraser tool to wipe out wrongly marked strokes on the silhouette of items. You do not have to mark green on narrow regions around edges that you want to keep, like hair, tree leaves, fur, grass and so forth, as our smart algorithm takes care of details.
3. Use the green tool and red tool to mark on pixels that are not included or excluded in the cutout.



Step 7. Use original image as background.

Tips.
1. Super PhotoCut will apply disc blur effect to background to avoid sharp contrast by default. Select Null on the right of four background options if you don’t want to use any special effect.
2. To apply multiple effects, directly click on them and adjust their parameters.
3. To quit current effect or alter the effect applied, select Null first.



Step 8. Follow the instruction to export new background effects to your Mac.
