Background Remover is a Photoshop-compatible plug-in for Windows designed by ImageSkill Sofware that can work with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Corel Paint Shop Pro, Ulead PhotoImpact, Macromedia Fireworks etc. The main purpose of the Background Remover is to extract some part of an image i.e. “the object” and remove part that which is unwanted, i.e. “the background”.

It is capable of determining areas of pixels to be modified, areas of pixels to be partly modified and areas of pixels to remain unmodified. The partly modification means the restoration of the non-distinct edges of objects. It is done by reinstating their partly transparent nature and also by subtracting the background color so that only the object color is left in these partly transparent regions. This ensures that the cut-out object will blend or composite correctly with a different background. The cutting objects may be used for collage, scrap-book and greeting card creation.
