Removing an image’s background contains many of advantages like easy integration across sales channels, increased attention on your product and improved page loading speed.

Now, we will show you tools helping you edit the background photo of your product in Shopify store easily.

  1. Preview

Preview is a native app for Mac OS X. when using Preview, you can not only load images and PDFs but also edit images and remove backgrounds.

To remove the background, go to Edit> Invert Selection and this will select everything except your object. Now you need tap Delete button to leave your object and a transparent background

  1. Photoshop

Photoshop is famous software for graphic designers in the world. You have to pay for $10 subscription from Adobe for the Creative Cloud suite monthly. However, Photoshop is considered as one of the most powerful editor which gives you all you need to edit an image.

There are 2 different selections in Photoshop:

  • Magic Wand:The magic wand tool is going to help us select (outline) the shoe. This is a great tool for large, general areas, but it won’t perfectly outline some of the finer details of the shape (like laces, for example).
  • Pen Tool:Our second selection is the pen tool. The pen tool is great for curves, so we are going to be using it to go around the sole of the shoe and inside all the sole’s grooves, bumps, and rounded edges.

Based on your demand, you can choose a suitable option. However, using Photoshop is quite complicated so you have to study the tutorials or have someone taught.

  1. GIMP

GIMP  is open and free software for both OS X and Windows. GIMP is a much more powerful image editing tool than either of the options we’ve previously looked at, and is more legitimately a Photoshop alternative.

To use GIMP, you need to upload the image you want to edit. Once you select your image, you are going to need to add an Alpha channel to the image so you can achieve a transparent background. To do this, go to Layer> Transparency> Add Alpha channel. This will tell the program to create a transparent background when you delete the existing one.
