If you’ve ever needed to remove the background from an image you know how difficult, time consuming, and tedious it can be. Photoshop has improved it’s toolset over the years but it can still be tricky to make an effective clipping mask, especially with subjects that have hair or fur.
There are plenty of tutorials on youtube if you’d like to learn how to perform complex masking yourself, but today I’d like to share an incredible service that you can use to outsource this type of work.
For as little as $0.50, cutoutimage.com will allow you to upload your photo, select from a menu of common cut-out options, and submit your project.
Their dashboard allows you to see the status of your job and download the final images when completed.
I had 3 images I needed to cut out recently and was pleased to see that the results from this service were perfect. You can choose to receive the final files as photoshop files with layers, or png with a transparent background.
As the saying goes, time is money. For the price, outsourcing tedious tasks like this can save you a ton of time you can spend on more important things.
