Photos without background are popular because they can be used basically in every environment. If you leave the background transparent, they will even adjust to the coloring of your web project without further effort. Especially in (but not limited to) online shops, objects without backgrounds are the first choice to focus on the product itself. Of course can you go for the full service package Photoshop and fire up the giant. Besides having to shell quite a load of money, cutting out with Photoshop is not for the beginners. Thankfully, there’s a much easier, faster and cheaper solution.
PhotoScissors, from Teorex, is near to perfect for beginners. The app is lightweight, does not bankrupt you and can be learned in a few minutes. Just with a few mouse clicks, you can have a beautifully cut out image in no time. Of course, PhotoScissors is not as exact as Photoshop handled by an absolute expert, but much more than sufficient in most cases. It is especially useful when you need to cut out objects from a row of photos as it will save you valuable lifetime – the more of which, the more you use it.
