How to Change the Background of an Image

Have you ever faced a situation where the photo you had didn’t go well due to a messy background? Well, we all have some near-to-perfect pictures that are ruined by the unwanted details in the background, consequently spoiling the whole atmosphere of the photo.

Anyways, changing the background itself is the best thing you can do here. Now some may think of going the photoshop way, but then again it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. That said, here’s a simple guide using which you can easily change the background of an image.

Change the Background of an Image

Method 1- Change photo background on Android

You can easily change the background of an image on your phone using certain apps. Firstly, you need to separate the subject from the background using Background Eraser. After which, you can superimpose a new background using the PhotoLayers app.

Check out the steps mentioned below for a detailed walkaround:

To remove background from an image:

1] Download and install Background Eraser from the Google Play Store.

2] Open the app and tap on Load a photo and select the picture you want to edit.

3] Next, proceed with cropping the image. It’s recommended to crop it as much as possible while making sure that the subject stays in the frame.

4] Now, there are a total of three methods to remove the background- Auto, Magic, and Manual. Notably, the Auto mode removes similarly colored pixels from the image. You can use this when the background has an even color shade.

The Magic mode, on the other hand, detects the edges automatically similar to Photoshop’s Magic Wand tool.

Lastly, as the name suggests, the manual method requires you to define the background and remove it from the image manually.

5] After removing the background, select the Repair tool. Now, tap on Done and choose the level of smoothness for the edges.

6] On finishing up, tap on Save and you’ll now have a picture with a transparent background.

To replace the transparent background with a new image:

3] That’s it; you’ve now successfully replaced the background. Tap on Save to download the edited image to your gallery.

3] Once the process is completed, you can simply download the image and place a background by either using Paint 3D or apps like PhotoLayers.

As you’d acknowledge, this method consumes very less time and minimal efforts. In fact, the results it produces are too accurate to be termed as a software-job by someone.
