Remove or Change a Background From a Picture

I was recently introduced to a fabulous image background remover which is easy to use and free:

Just upload an image and watch the magic happen.

Here's a before and after of myself. I used my editing tools in Wix to change the background to something far more interesting.

The photo above is a Facebook advert I created. I had to remove the white background from the photo of the man so I could change the colour of the background and add the other icons.

Here is the original photo I purchased it doesn't have a transparent background it's white. So unless I'm using white as my background it's not going to work.

To make my Facebook advert I cropped out the white background. I then uploaded it to my account. In Canva I chose the blue background for the advert and the font. I then found a colourful cloud in the illustrations supplied by Canva and placed the text in front of the cloud.

When creating Facebook adverts you can't have too much text compared to graphics so I utilise the text in the actual Facebook post to describe the service in more detail and a catchy header.


If you have a Wix website (like this one) you can hop into the Media Tool and edit your photos using different backgrounds, or automatically cutting out the background. These tools are built into your Wix website for easy photo editing.

I've made a small demo video below to explain how it is done.
