How To Remove Backgrounds From Old Images You Already Own

On the last blog discussing lead magnets, 3 Ideas For The Perfect Opt-In, I gave you some tips to get your creative juice flowing for your perfect lead magnet.  Part of designing your perfect opt-in is to design a great cover image, sometimes using yourself as a model on the cover. Do you have the perfect picture of you, and you want to remove the image backgrounds without doing another photoshoot?

Only a year ago I remember searching through Fiverr for someone to remove the backgrounds from a lot of my images. I wanted to be able to use them without paying for a new photoshoot. Wow! A lot has changed since. On today’s tutorial video, I want to share with you how to instantly remove image backgrounds using a simple tool at

    Wow. Maybe even a non techie like me could do this. Thanks for the tutorial.

      That’s right Christy. Things that required buying expensive software, learning and more time are becoming more accessible and affordable.

    That was such a well done tutorial, Webly. Very clear with great examples of not getting it perfect on the first try and how to fix that. The cost really ends up being so little in comparison to having to pay someone else to do it, so it’s worthwhile if you have several images to remove backgrounds from.

      If you have several images, you can always delegate to an assistant for a few hours in 1 day and the job is done for much less than having a graphic expert do it for you.

    You made that look so easy! Thanks for the tips and the tutorial. I could see using something like this in the future. I had a photo shoot done last year. BUT it’s always fun to change things up.

      Yes even with the perfect photoshoot you want to be able to have a picture of you with no background to create FB ads and posts. Happy the tutorial was valuable to you.

    I tried to see if this worked (I tried one last week that did not) but it wanted to charge me before I could see the results. I don’t operate that way, so I guess I’m still on the hunt. 🙁

      Yes Carol as indicated at the end of the video the downloads are per credid. The price is very small for 15 credits $3.99. You would pay $5 on Fiverr to have someone do it for you. It’s still a great deal.

    Eep! This is SO much easier than Photoshop and other “quick” tools I’ve been using. Thank you for the info!

      Hi shannon, it is a pretty cool tool. Happy that you find the info valueble.

    Hi Webly,

    This is so easy to do and cheaper than buying Photoshop (well for those who can’t afford it). Thank you!

      Hi Zaria, It is a cheaper alternative to Photoshop. It doesn’t have all the cool features on Photoshop but for a quick job, it does the trick.

    Hi Webly,

    I don’t use clipping magic a lot but have a monthly $3.99 plan for use whenever I need to remove the background from an image. Love it!

      Isn’t it a handy tool. Think about all the times someone takes a really good picture of you, sends it to you and you know you can use it on your social media graphics right?
