PhotoScissors 5 for the Mac offers easy photo background clean-up

Sometimes you need to quickly and easily clean the background of a photograph. PhotoScissors 5 by TeoreX is a convenient tool for doing this.

It’s a photo cleaning app for users who don’t need or want to learn secrets of software such as Photoshop. The tool lets you extract objects and remove background from photos without a huge learning curve. All you need to do is to draw some foreground and zones on an image. PhotoScissor’s algorithms jump into action, and you’ll immediately see the on-screen results.

The utility automatically applies anti-aliasing filters to smooth edges of the cutout. PhotoScissors also processes large images relatively quickly; in fact, there’s no limit by image size. Minor glitches left after the automatic processing of the image can be fixed right with strokes of the mouse. PhotoScissors 5can handle all popular graphic formats such as PNG and JPEG.

I’ve used the app on lots of pics with successful results. It’s not always perfect; however, with a little work you can clean up anything that’s missing from a cutout.

A single user license costs $19.99. PhotoScissors 5 requires macOS 10.10 or higher and is available at the Mac App Store.
