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. Locate the image that you want to use as background, drag and drop it to the right.

1. Use mouse scroll to zoom in or out the cut out portion to create a consistent view.
2. Use Hand tool to drag that portion to the appropriate position on background.
3. Super PhotoCut will apply disc blur effect to background to avoid sharp contrast by default. Select Null if you don’t want to use any special effect.
